Can Squats Make Your Butt Bigger? | POPSUGAR Fitness

When you think of getting a bigger butt, one of the first exercises that probably comes to mind is the squat. Yes, squats are great if you’re looking to increase your overall lower-body strength, but you’re going to need to implement exercises that target your glute muscles into your lower-body programs if you’re trying to strengthen and increase the size of your butt.

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). If your goal is a bigger butt, you’re going to want to do exercises that target your gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite exercises that will help you strengthen your lower body, especially your butt, so check them out ahead.
