Squats are the best exercise for getting the butt of your dreams, but we’ll prove that you can add roundness to your glutes even without those squats that have already bored everybody to death. We’ve put together nine toning exercises that aren’t squats but will nevertheless help you to build the curves you desire. Add this video to your favorites and go back to it 3 times a week for the best possible results.
Here’re some highlights of the workout we offer:
- Workout zone: anywhere where there’s a flat solid surface (like the floor with an exercise mat on it);
- Targeted zones: the gluteal muscles;
- Workout performance: one complete workout includes nine exercises, each with 10-15 repetitions;
