8 Best Butt Lifting Exercises for Sculpted Glutes

Hip Thrusts

Hip thrusts are among the best exercises to build and improve the strength of the glutes. Begin on the ground by resting the shoulder blades against a bench that is secured. Next, sit on the ground with straight legs and put a barbell across the hips’ crease. Put both hands around the barbell’s bar. Another option is to hold the dumbbell. After that, bend the knees and have both feet about hip-width apart.

From this position, engage the core, drive the heels into the floor, and squeeze the glutes to push the pelvis up. Make sure to bend your knees at a right angle, keep the torso parallel to the floor, and keep the shins vertical. Next, bring down the weight gently. Do 2 to 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps. If you are a beginner, it is advisable to start without a barbell.  [1]
