Hi ladies! Im new to the workout community and I want a new butt. Everyone raves about squats giving you a BUTT but I don't. When I squat I never feel it in my glutes, just my thighs. I can do 30 squats but only my thighs will burn. What can I be doing wrong?
Thanks cx

When you come up do you squeeze your Glutes?

Squatting below parallel incorporates more gluteal muscles than a squat that's above parallel. I recommend starting off with a much lighter weight in order to perfect your form. Sorry to butt in.

Sorry I had to butt in as well haha. But you need more than squats to form a better glute. My top 3 favorite glute workouts are barbell back suat (ass to the grass), leg press, and barbell back lunge. Here is a routine you should start on now.
