    Waaaaaaaaa I am so happy I came across your website lol!! It turns out, with the summer coming, I decided to work on my butt lately … but I didn’t know what exercices I should do except for the famous squats… (which I hate lol). I am very excited to build my new “butt program” using all your exercices!!!!
    Thanks, have a great day

    I didn’t see kneeling squat up on the list. Maybe it has another name.

    I love Stair Climbing. I really notice when I go up the stairs in my house I try to consintrate on stepping on the stair with my whole foot and using my glutes to help propel me forward. It really helps. Sometimes I do a kick back up each step to add a little more butt workout, only when no one is around of ciurse. If my family caught me I’d never hear the end of it, 😂😉

      That’s awesome, love this idea – thanks for sharing!! I’m always after little ways to get a bit of a sneaky butt workout in, so this fits the bill perfectly. I usually already do the stair thing (I like to take them 2 at a time as well), but adding a kickback is genius!

    Hello Jolie,
    Your website is a gem full of information! Thank you very much! I was wonderinghow frequently would you recommend I should exercise? Everyday with a different set of exercise each time?

      Hi Haylee, you’re most welcome! Your comment made my day – I absolutely love comments like this, so thank you so much for taking the time to get in touch! :)

      The glutes respond really well to exercise and I have heard that you can train daily with no problems. I do this myself, as there are really no downsides. You could definitely go and pick a random exercise each day if you like, or stick with the same ones if you find some that you can really feel in your butt and like doing! One tip is to try and keep it being a challenge, so be sure to use adequate resistance (weights, or make it harder by doing more reps) each time.

      If you are wanting to try and really build up some muscle in your butt, then you would benefit from doing lower reps and heavy resistance. In this case, you might want to train every alternate day instead, so that you can give your muscles some time to recover (and build up) between training sessions.

      Hope this helps, let me know if you need any more help!
