Whatever the shape of your butt, chances are you too are looking to improve yours. 

The good news is, we definitely know all the secrets to a perfectly shaped derriere. 

So let’s get started. 

There are a few more butt exercises that deserve to be on the list, but goblet squat is high on our list. 

It’s a must-do in your glute building workout.

The Goblet Dumbbell Squat is similar to the front squat. All the loads are in the front of your body, so you are not putting pressure on the spine. (This is important especially when you have a weak back.)

As an added bonus, you also work your abs. Because the weights are in the front, it forces you to engage your core to maintain your center of gravity.

How to do Goblet Squat: 

  1. Grasp and hold a dumbbell vertically next to your chest, with both hands holding one end of the dumbbell. 
  2. Brace your abs, and lower your body as far as you can by pushing your hips back and bending your knees.
  3. Pause, then slowly push yourself back to the standing position. Continue to complete the prescribed number of repetitions.
