6 BodyWeight Butt Exercises to Sculpt Head Turning Glutes


To achieve a head turning butt isn’t as hard as you think! A strong, shapely butt can easily be built with these 6 simple exercises, all you need is a swiss ball, plus you can do them at home. The exercises and activities that you will be performing target all 3 muscles in your glutes.

Your glute muscles are:

  • The gluteus maximus (the largest muscle).
  • Gluteus medius.
  • The gluteus minimus.

The key to firm glutes is to hit all of these muscles from different angles and with a variety of exercises and cardio activities. Remember you can’t always change the shape of your glutes, but you can make them firmer and stronger, plus give them a more round and toned look.
