Believe it or not, the easiest muscle to tone is the buttocks, but you have to do it properly.
To increase the volume of your buttocks and legs, adding weight and resistance to your exercises is the best way to achieve it.
Squats are thought to be the best exercise to increase the volume of buttocks, but the reality the glutes are divided into three muscles so not all exercises are suitable for each part of the buttocks.
