Can Squats Make Your Butt Bigger?

Squats Aren't Making Your Butt Bootylicious — Here's What Actually Works

Can Squats Make Your Butt Bigger?

When you thinking of having a bigger butt one of the first exercises that will come to mind is the squat. Yes, squats are great if you're looking to increase your overall lower-body strength and size, but you're going to need to implement other exercises for a major transformation. When you perform a squat, the main muscles targeted are the quadriceps with the gluteus maximus (the largest muscle in your butt) acting as one of the main synergists (a muscle that helps create movement).

Instead of doing hundreds of squats with minimal results, try the following exercises to target your gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus.
