- You can't choose where you gain weight. If you start eating more and lifting weights, there's no guarantee your butt will reap the benefits.
- The shape of your butt is primarily based on genetics. Take a look at your parents or other relatives and you'll probably notice that you have inherited some of their genes.
- Doing lower body exercises (along with upper body training and cardio, of course) and eating more calories than you burn can help you build muscle but your genetics will decide how much your butt can really change.
- There isn't a magic exercise that will make your butt change.
That doesn't mean you shouldn't lift weights--lifting makes your muscles strong and firm and the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism will be. Some of the best exercises for your butt include squats, deadlifts and lunges, so incorporate those weekly. Check out the top butt exercises.
