Why You Need Targeted Glute Training? And must be in a Glute Customized Program.

No two butts are created equal, there is so much variety out there.

Knowing which butt shape you have can be important because you may not have the butt that you want right now.

Knowing where you stand right now, and comparing this to where you want to be, is critical when it comes to setting goals and developing a plan to achieve them. Creating your best ass ever is no different, so let’s get educated!

What Causes the Different Types of Butt Shapes?

Your skeletal structure determines the main framework for your body shape, and the overall shape that you end up with is determined by the distribution of fat and muscle on top of your skeleton. For the butt, the main factor which causes the particular shape of the buttocks is your pelvis, followed by your fat distribution, which is largely genetically determined.

In general, for most people who do not do specific glute training, muscle does not contribute a lot to butt shape, as the glutes are generally underdeveloped in most people.

Just so you know, no, I’m not making these things up! The whole categorization of something as obscure as butt shape seems to originally come from the cosmetic surgery field.

Cosmetic surgeons dealing with procedures like buttocks augmentation, liposuction and the like ended up categorizing most women into one of these 4 main butt shape categories.

That’s not to say that there aren’t more types/categories, but these are the ones that seem to be most widely recognized.

The Different Types of Butt Shapes for Women?

Most plastic surgeons recognize four main shapes when it comes to the female derriere:

  • Square – “H” shape

  • Round – “C” or “O” shape

  • Heart/pear – “A” shape

  • Inverted – “V” shape

The Square “H” Shape

This particular shape is caused by either higher more prominent hip bones or a distribution of fat in the ‘love handle’ area. The overall effect is that the butt looks square shaped and is closer to appearing as a straight up-and-down right below your waist, rather than tapering to the waist with a smooth curve.

The Round “C” or “O” Shape

Commonly referred to as bubble butts due to their round appearance, a round butt shape is characterized by a fat distribution around the cheeks of the butt, including the upper portion of the cheeks, which causes a rounded effect when viewed from behind. This shape often sits high when viewed from the side, and is usually quite perky and full.

The Heart/Pear “A” Shape

The heart or pear shape is a result of fat distribution around lower portion of the butt and thighs. This results in a more tapered look from the waistline to the bottom of the butt (hence the “A” shape or ‘upside down heart’ description).

Inverted “V” Shape

The V shape has to do with lower estrogen levels that results in the shift of fat storage from the butt to the midsection. This can result in an inverted shape where the base of the butt is less full than the top of the butt.

Now that you know your butt shape, you’re in a better position to start creating the changes you want to your butt. When you train in our Booty Lab Fitness small group programs we will determine what you can do to create a better shape for your butt, as well as the best butt exercises you should be doing for your butt type in order to create a more rounded, visually pleasing shape. Our programs are structured to give you a more lifted and generally all-round (pun intended) nicer butt!
