I’d like to state that I’m a big believer in exercising for fitness rather than to “look” a certain way. Fitness can give you so much more than aesthetic appeal can (and often that’s just a bonus that comes along with the training anyway).
I do understand, however, that most people exercise to “look good” - and if you could get a good butt from sitting on the couch eating Tim Tams, then they’d happily do that (which unfortunately is not the case).
So with that being said…. How do you get a nice round Beyonce butt?
2. A LOT OF SQUATS
If you want to shape your backside you’re going to need to do some good old fashioned weight training. You don’t need a hundred different leg machines to work on, you could use:
Lump of timber
Small child, or even training partner (piggy back style)
To start with, I’d focus on a basic squat where you’re using a full range of movement (just like sitting back into a chair except lowering your butt further down to the ground). Once you have good technique, add on as much weight as possible and do them as often as possible – leaving a good 24hrs between training days to allow your muscles to recover and rebuild.
You can then add variety by trying narrow squats, wide squats, overhead squats (with a weight), front squats, back squats, jump squats, pistiol squats (one leg)… the choices are endless.
