This may or may not be a goal for some women...but it is for me personally.
My coach/trainer has me doing 2 leg days per week. One is heavy legs and he trains me. The other is light weights and i do on my own and with more ancillary movements, but def higher reps.

In looking at some girls, and their booties are fabulous i'm like they have to be gifted or something....lol. Then i was watching one of the youtube vids by Jamie Pinder and she was looking to grow her booty to and she noticed that more south american girls tended to have more growth in the glutes, so she would follow them on social media and replicate their movements to grow her booty.

That gave me an idea to do the same....follow some girls and see what they do as part of their routine. So i did and i do now. Will let you know how it goes when i shed more fat. I'm currently in a cut so hoping to see some growth from last time i competed. I think my hamstrings have improved a bit, but hoping glutes have too and quads. Speaking of which, i've started prep for a bodybuilding contest, i should post up..i'm a slacker lol.

Hey Bova, like so many body parts, our genetic makeup does affect our strong areas and weak areas. Some guys can't seem to put any meat on their calves no matter what they do. Some guys have upper bodies that blow up, and then they concurrently struggle with bird legs.

IMO, the key to good training is to acknowledge your weak areas, and give them the extra attention they need. Sounds like you're doing that with the glutes. I don't think it's a secret, but squats and lunges are staples. It's funny, I can squat all day long, yet I'd rather take a beating than do lunges! LOL

On your light days, one thing I'd recommend is using the big exercise ball. Lay down on the ball with the ball across your shoulders, and think of doing a reverse plank with your abs/midsection and legs off the ball (feet on the ground, legs bent at the knee, face looking up at the ceiling). You don't even need any weight, but do hip raises, and squeeze your glutes at the top at peak contraction. It's great for the core too, but your glutes will be screaming.

I'm not really sure how you want to objectively measure progress in that area, but I'm assuming a tape measure change with no increase in bodyfat would be one way. When it's all said and done, I'm assuming you want a certain look, and for that ass to pop out there. In that case, before/after pics may be the best way to measure progress. Just try to recreate the conditions for taking progress pics so that you're comparing apples to apples.

I would check out the videos on YouTube and Instagram like you are doing. I ran into a slew of them by searching on various types of training for glutes. And tons of fitness girls came up. A lot of them are young and they look ridiculous in my opinion. Skinny upper body and skinny legs and these huge butts....but some of them doing some really interesting exercises. I can't squat anymore due to a decade of squats going way too heavy with low reps. So my glutes need some help as lower back locks up and it can be tricky doing glutes since they are the strongest muscles in the body.

Agreed. I would add barbell hip thrusts as a great glute developer. Better than any machine hip thrust I have ever used. For me the key is you have to go heavy to really get the glutes to engage.
