8 Hot Exercises to Make Your Butt Round Faster

By Annabel Anita Adanna

Let’s face it, most of us are not blessed with bubble-butts. But don’t worry. If you want to get bootylicious, all you need is to consistently do the right workout.

To make your firm, round butt dreams come true, Bright Side has made a list of 8 exercises that target the right muscles. Select any 4 of these and perform them for 20 minutes every day without fail. To make your task even easier, we have presented exercises that do not require any equipment.

Rainbow Leg Lift

If you have envied the perfect butt of Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima, know that this is the exercise she does to keep in shape. Rainbow leg lift helps move your glutes both up and down, and back and forth. All 3 of your gluteus muscles are put to work. As a bonus, this exercise works your abs too.

How it’s done:

  1. Get on all fours. Make sure that your shoulders are stacked over your wrists and your hips over your knees.
  2. Straighten your left leg and move it sideways as far away from the starting position as you comfortably can.
  3. Lift the leg up and move it across the right leg to the opposite side in an arch motion (the name Rainbow comes from this rainbow shaped move). The toe of the left foot should touch the ground on the right side of the right leg.
  4. Bring the left leg back to the original extended location. Do this 20 times.
  5. Now do the same for your right leg and again, repeat 20 times.

Donkey Kicks


Don’t just go by the name, this is a super-efficient exercise that targets the spot where your glutes and hamstrings meet and helps you tone up the muscles of your buttocks. What’s more enticing is that this exercise also helps to sculpt your abs and strengthen your spine. Like a buy one, get 2 free Walmart offer!

How it’s done:

  1. Get on all fours. With your palms placed directly under your shoulders and your knees under your hips.
  2. Keeping the right knee bent at 90 degrees, lift your leg all the way up until you are comfortable.
  3. Lower your knee without touching the floor, and lift again. Repeat 20 times.
  4. Now do the same with your left leg.

Things you could be doing wrong: There is not much that can go wrong in this exercise, but keep in mind that you should not overarch your back and also don’t turn your foot inward or outward. The lifted foot should be parallel to your lower leg.

Bound Tiger Pose

This yoga pose warms and stretches the back muscles and spine. While there are a few other versions of this exercise, we will stick with the classic one.

How it’s done:

  1. Kneel down on all fours. With your palms placed directly under your shoulders and your knees directly under your hips.
  2. Lift your right leg upward so that it’s in line with your torso.
  3. Slowly fold your knee so that your foot gets closer to your head, with your toe pointing toward your head. Stay in this position for 10-15 seconds. Use the opposite hand to hold your foot, if staying in this position seems too difficult.
  4. Now bring your leg down and toward your chest, and lower your head. Try to touch your forehead with your knee and hold the position for 10-15 seconds.
  5. Now go back to lifting the leg as described in step 2 and repeat 5 times.
  6. Do the same thing the other leg and repeat 5 times.



Squats are a basic exercise that target multiple muscles in your entire lower body including your quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, and your whole posterior.

How it’s done:

  1. Stand upright with your feet spread shoulder-width apart.
  2. Push your hips backward, squat down, and then come up. Don’t put pressure on your knees and if you are a beginner squat down only until you are comfortable. Don’t push yourself.

How many reps: One repetition includes squatting down and rising back up. Do 20 reps.

Curtsy Squats


Curtsy squats are an excellent exercise that you can use to tone your butt muscles and inner thighs. Whether you are looking for a perfect round butt or you want to tone up your unsightly inner thighs, this is your go-to exercise. However, this is also one of those exercises that beginners often do incorrectly. So, let’s take a look at how to do it the right way.

How it’s done:

  1. Start by standing upright.
  2. Next, move your left leg behind and to the right across your right leg, bending both knees as if you were curtsying. So basically, you are going to sink your hips down and rotate your hip bones forward while your legs remain crossed at a 45-degree angle.
  3. Bring your left leg to the starting position and repeat this exercise 20 times.
  4. Repeat the same exercise with your right leg 20 times.

Things you could be doing wrong: The most common mistake people make is that they overextend their butt outward and therefore their hip gets angled backward.

Ski Squats


This exercise not only gives your bottom a facelift but it also strengthens and tones your lower legs and calves. It’s the perfect exercise if you want well-toned legs and a well-toned butt.

How it’s done:

  1. Stand straight with your feet close together.
  2. Now sink back into a squat and then rise up.

How many reps: Squatting down an rising up are one rep. Do 15 reps or just repeat the exercise for 40 seconds.

Sumo Walk

This exercise is great for toning your glutes, hip flexors, and quadriceps. It also engages the hamstrings. You can start doing this exercise with slow walks and later, when you get comfortable you can switch to a faster pace.

How it’s done:

  1. As the name suggests, start off by getting into a sumo wrestler like stance. Stand with your feet spread wide apart, with your toes slightly pointed outward.
  2. Hold your hands together in front of your chest.
  3. Maintain a squat position and begin to move to the right. Take 15 steps.
  4. After the 15 steps toward the right, take 15 steps toward the left until you get back to the spot where you started.

Glute Bridge


This workout strengthens the glutes, hamstrings, hip muscles, and the lower back muscles. The glute bridge is also an excellent exercise for those who spend long hours at the office sitting at a desk, since it strengthens the spine and promotes better posture.

How it’s done:

  1. Start by lying flat on your back with your arms resting at your sides and palms placed firmly on the ground.
  2. Next, bend your knees so that your shin is perpendicular to the ground.
  3. Pull your belly in to engage your core.
  4. Now lift your lower back and hips so that your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. Hold it for a couple of seconds and lower down.

Things you could be doing wrong: People often arch their back while lifting their back up. This puts in a lot of pressure on their back and should be avoided. What should be done is that the hips should be lifted first and then the spine.

How many reps: Going up and coming down once is counted as one rep. Do it 20 times.

Now that time or lack of equipment is not an issue, we hope that you will be able to realize your dreams soon. Do you know any other cool exercises that can help us get a gorgeous butt? Let us know in the comment section. And if you liked this article, don’t forget to share it with your friends.
