On my Instagram and Snapchat accounts, I always mention I like to do exercises for my butt in almost every workout. While I definitely have cellulite on my legs, I feel like it could be worse if I didn’t do these exercises for your butt to help reduce cellulite at least 2 times per week. Most of these can be done right at home, so let’s get started OK?
Exercises for your butt to help reduce cellulite:
These are always my go-to. You can do walking lunges pretty much anywhere and everywhere.
Going to the bus stop? Do some walking lunges there and back.
Going to the mail box? Yep, walking lunges.
Grocery store? Why not? Lunge away. The more the merrier is my thought!
Need more of a challenge? Hold dumbbells or kettlebells in your hands as you do those walking lunges.

Or you can do them with a weight plate overhead. So many variations, so little time! Walking lunges are a great exercise for your butt that can be done all over your house!
These look as if they are easy but trust me, they will give you a serious burn and are a great exercise for your butt. You can use any band, but I highly recommend the Slingshot hip circle. It is the best band I have found for this exercise and can be used in many different ways as well.
These can easily be done at home as you can you see in the video below. (note: my backyard is a slight uphill, so it made these even more challenging!)
I got mine from Amazon, click here to get one for yourself.
While these are awkward as can be, they deliver great results on your glutes. If you are lucky enough to have extra money on hand, I highly recommend a hip thruster for your home gym. I’ve always wanted one……maybe someday. 🙂
It’s pricey, but I have heard it’s worth every penny.

Since I don’t have a hip thruster, I use my old school Reebok step bench and sometimes just my bench. Hip thrusts are an excellent way to reduce cellulite on your butt, you should be doing them at least 1-2 times per week.
The hardest part is getting the bar in position and without hurting your hip bones. I use the Airex Mat or the Squat Sponge to ease the stress of the weight. If you are unsure of the proper positioning, I have to recommend Bret Contreras site for more information as he is considered the “glute guy”. These take a bit of time to get used to, but once you get the form down, you will be excited about your gains!
Those are 3 of my favorite exercises for your butt to help reduce cellulite, try them out and let me know what you think.
