Butt Lifting Exercises
Women build bums like men build biceps. It requires consistent effort, but once it pops, it will be your badge of honour. So if you’re looking to make yours pop, this list of butt lifting exercises is for you.
As you go through these exercises; keep in mind that heavier loads with fewer reps promotes faster muscle growth. So if you want to speed up the butt lifting; work with as much weight as you can safely manage 3-6 clean reps of.
With that said, you shouldn’t heavily load every single workout. You must allow your glutes sufficient recovery time between workouts in order for them to grow. Allow each muscle group at least 3 days rest before heavily loading again.
Here are your butt lifting exercises

Single leg glute bridge
The single leg glute bridge is a variation of the standard glute bridge. Except in this instance, you are driving your weight through a single glute, rather than both at the same time. This is a great way to add some extra resistance to the muscle so that it can grow faster.
