Do squats make big bums and widen the hips?

of kevin8207 »May 16, 2007 11:55 am

Hi guys!

I read that in a report and I can confirm it from my environment. My training goal just consists of perfect symmetry and less mass. now I wonder what leg exercises I can do as an alternative. Hackenschmitt and front squats should be better. However, I have to admit that I have never done this before, and no one in our studio has ever done this exercise.

The muscle is also a bottom, and some people just get it
Van Damme's butt (duck ass). I've read it many times in forums.

But you can continue to train as normal.
Do squats all the time and don't get a Van Damme bum, at least that's what happens to them.

Hmm, I've always thought that squats are also responsible for a "beautiful" core

I agree. Although I would rather say from the wellness fairytale forest.
The glutes will be trained in squats, but they will not grow disproportionately compared to other muscle groups.

mhm .. so it's not a legend! In our studio, someone trains who has been doing heavy squats 1-2 times a week for months. actually i only see him doing squats and no other leg exercises.
and you can clearly see the progress he is making. but!!!! everyone notices that his ass is getting wider and wider. and the thighs gain mass, but only in the upper part of the thigh. they are clearly not as developed towards the knees. and even experienced bodybuilders have already said that some people destroy their symmetry because the butt is sometimes too involved in the squat.

I would say it depends on the execution! the further you go down your ass, the more it trains your glutes. But I can't understand that with the wider hips.

just so you don't get me wrong, i do squats myself and i like this exercise. However, I tend to do more WH and not so heavy weights, so I haven't noticed any effects on either.

And what should that have to do with the number of repetitions?

Well, I think that has something to do with whether I do heavy squats and only do 4-6 reps or whether I do 20 reps with a lighter weight.

As I said, I read that in an article and it said:

Small hips and buttocks:
Squats may be the best leg extender, but if done inappropriately and excessively, they can trample your symmetry. Weightlifters do squats with the bar on their upper back with their butts stuck out and their torso tilted forward. They do it that way because more weight can be lifted by using the hips, buttocks and lower back. This is great for weightlifters but cruel for symmetry.

The bodybuilding squat is much more vertical: it is called a "high bar squat" // here and there // where the bar rests on top of the shoulders, the torso is more upright and the stance is narrower. It relieves the buttocks and hips and gives the load further down on the quadriceps // Are you looking: here //. It is even better to do squats with a barbell in front // bar on top of the chest and deltas // and Hackenschmidt squats, which isolate the quadriceps and reduce the involvement of the hips and buttocks

It is true that the ass (i.e. the gluteus maximus - by the way, the largest single muscle we have) grows backwards (not to the side!) When doing deep squats. You just have to watch weightlifters at competitions - you can sometimes put a glass of beer on them. But muscle is muscle and you can usually recognize really strong athletes by that.

Omg, I always get "ripped off" because of my huge ass and have been doing heavy / deep squats for a long time,
but dirt ....

In any case, the hips can't get wider from it ... If it's not fat, which muscle should it be that is growing? The course of the gluteus makes it impossible that the buttocks are so wide that they are wider than the hip bones!

Apart from that, God also allowed other exercises to make the legs nice and even and not just squats * g *
