These butt workouts target all the muscles that help create a firmer and fuller butt. So warm up those glutes and hamstrings because your booty is about to work a little harder.

- Step down slowly with your right leg that’s still suspended until your right foot is firmly back on the floor.
- Continue with the amount of reps you have decided on with your left leg then do the same with your right leg.
Single-arm dumbbell raise
- Use a dumbbell that has an overhand grip and hold it in front of your belly area, it should be at arm’s length. (If it’s easier for you, you can hold the dumbbell with both hands).
- Bend at your knees and lower your body at a 45-degree angle towards the floor. Lower the dumbbell between your legs.
- Keep your arms straight, pushing your hips forwards, make sure to straighten your knees, and lift the dumbbell up again to chest level as your rising back to a standing position.
