    22 Cheat Sheets For Anyone Who Wants A Bigger Butt

    Exercise routines, diet tips, and recipes for putting more junk in that trunk.

    So you want a fuller, stronger butt.

    As BuzzFeed Health has previously reported, your butt is made up of three glute muscles — the gluteus medius, gluteus minimus, and gluteus maximus — which are covered with a layer of fat. So getting that bun definition is going to require way more than just doing an absurd amount of squats, or trying to eat slightly more carefully. It actually usually requires following a careful diet that's focused on losing or maintaining body fat and a workout routine that challenges the entire body, especially the glutes.
