You all know I love my booty workouts! A common problem for many women is a lot of exercises that are great for building your butt can cause your legs to bulk up (especially your quadriceps).
I love showing you all different types of workouts that you help solve this problem. This is a booty workout for women specifically, to help you build a perky butt, without getting bigger thighs.
HOW TO COMPLETE THE WORKOUT
- Complete each exercise for 60 seconds. And do all 5 exercises on your left leg, before moving to your right.
- If you can’t get to 60 seconds, you can pause and rest, but try to get to the full 60 seconds.
- Aim for 2-3 rounds in total.

HOW TO BUILD YOUR BOOTY AND NOT YOUR THIGHS
A lot of personal trainers will recommend that you do squats, lunges and deadlifts if you want to grow your booty.
I think that those workouts are great but they focus primarily on the quadriceps (muscle on the front of your thighs) and hamstrings (the muscle at the back of your thighs).
So if you do squats, your booty will grow but so will your legs, especially if you are mesomorph or endomorph body type.
And if you don’t want your legs to get too muscular, you should do more workouts that target your glutes and not your legs. That’s why are recommend workouts like donkey kicks.
Donkey kicks are simple but effective. This exercise targets your glutes and not your leg muscles. It will help you tone, tighten and strengthen your butt without growing your thigs. Perfect!
