You must do more than walking in order to build muscle and gain the appearance of a bigger butt.
A shapely butt adds desirable curves to your body. Unfortunately, you are born with what you have and it is a simple rule of genetics which determines the size of your assets. So, exercises such as walking will not make your butt larger. There are exercises however, that target your backside and will produce a rounder, more toned tush by building muscle.
Walking by itself will not make your butt bigger. However, you can build your glutes by walking uphill and including additional exercises such as walking lunges.
Walk Toward Your Goal
Though the everyday act of walking will not help shape your butt, adding resistance to intentional walking exercises can target your glutes. Instead of flat surfaces, find a hill to walk up and down. Both inclines and declines are more demanding of your muscles, meaning your calves, hamstrings, quads, and glutes will receive a good kick in the butt. Incorporate a resistance band to perform the tube walk. This move will grant you a better butt as well as a few funny looks.
Stand in the middle of the band with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding one end of the band in each hand. Cross the band in front of your body to form an X. Keep your right hand by your right hip and vice versa. Your back should remain tall, your knees straight and your feet parallel at all times. Take a small step to the right with your right foot then bring your left foot a step in the same direction. Take 10 steps to the right before switching directions and repeating. Upping your resistance level through ankle weights is another way to work your body harder, thus shaping your butt more effectively.
Take It To The Mat
The roundhouse is a move that targets the butt as well as your abs, hips and thighs. Begin on all fours on a mat or the ground. Place your hands under your shoulders and knees under your hips. Engage your abs and maintain a flat back. Keep your upper body still as you lift your right knee out to the side at hip level, keeping it bent. Kick the right leg straight out, turning your head slightly to the right. Bend knee back to hip level and return it to starting position. Repeat for 15 reps before switching legs.
Max Out Your Lunge
The classic lunge is a staple in many exercise regimens. However, the lunge kick adds variety and increases results. Begin by holding a single dumbbell in your left hand, standing with feet shoulder-width apart. Lunge backwards with your left leg until your right thigh is parallel to the ground. Bring your left leg forward again, rising up, and kick the left leg out to hip height in front of you. Return to starting position and perform 15 reps. Switch sides and repeat.
Discover Your Super Powers
Supermans require no equipment and effectively work the back, shoulders, hips and buttocks. Start by lying on your stomach on a mat or the floor. Stretch your legs out behind you with your toes pointing away from you. Reach your arms overhead with palms facing each other. Engage your core muscles and exhale while slowly reaching both legs away from your torso until they lift a few inches off the floor. Simultaneously, float both arms a few inches off the ground. Keep arms and legs straight without arching your back. Hold this position for a moment before inhaling and lowering back into starting position. Repeat for 30 seconds and allow for 15 seconds of rest before repeating twice more.
Unleash Your Inner Beast
The bird-dog targets your butt as well as your abs, back and hips. Begin on your hands and knees on a mat. Place your knees beneath your hips with the crease of your wrists directly below your shoulders with fingers facing forward. Engage your core while keeping your back in a straight line. Slowly lengthen your left leg by lifting it off the floor and straightening it out until it is at hip level, parallel to the floor. At the same time, raise and straighten your right arm. Continue to raise until it is parallel to the floor. Do not lift your head or move your shoulders during this movement. Gently lower yourself back into starting position and repeat for three sets of 30 seconds, alternating sides each time.
