Fitness influencers across Instagram seem to promote body weight squats as the exercise for glute growth. And while they’re a necessary first step to developing proper form and fundamental strength, they probably won’t be the only magic key to achieving the well-rounded butt of your dreams.
Glute gains are a science and require a strategic strength-training regimen. But if you add volume and variety to your lower-body training regimen — with some patience — you’ll begin to see your desired results.
I myself consider body weight squats as an exercise that helps you to learn the correct technique and build a foundation before adding weights.
