The same holds true with squats. Even though some would say both the quads and the glutes are the primary muscles used during squat execution, I would have to somewhat disagree. I would say in most cases the primary muscle group used in squats are the quadriceps or front leg muscles, and the secondary muscles would be the glutes. The reason I say this is because you always feel the burn and stress in the quads long before you ever feel anything, if at all, in the glutes. This does not mean you should stop doing squats to build your glutes. But if you are doing squats to build glutes, then at least perform them correctly. If you do not go at least parallel or lower on the squat, you will only be targeting your quads and not your glutes.
So why would I prefer walking lunges over squats? Because the primary muscles targeted are your butt muscles, also referred to as glutes or gluteus maximus. There are other exercises that use the glutes as the primary muscle, but walking lunges are my favorite. When performed correctly, they will give you soreness deep inside your glutes every time. And because heavy weights can be used with this exercise, it is great for building bigger butt muscles fast. There are many varieties of lunges, but my favorite will always be the walking lunges.

​The True Butt Builder - Walking Lunges​ for Women

I prefer to use 25 pound weights in each hand when performing the 10x20 higher rep workout, and 35 pound weights when doing the 10x10 lower rep workout routine for walking lunges. Try to figure out your max, and don’t be afraid to go heavy. Your glues may be stronger than you think.

Add some walking lunges to your routine today. You’ll be glad you did.

4. Lean slightly forwardrather than keeping your back completely straight. This will put more emphasis on you glutes when doing walking lunges.
3. Watch your form and intensity. Don’t just go through the motions. In order to make progress you must push yourself hard. Make every rep of every set count. Concentrate on feeling the glutes do the work and not your legs.
2. Don't let your knees extend over your toes.By avoiding this, you will be avoiding knee problems in the future. A wider stride will help prevent this.
1. Go deep when doing walking lunges. Make sure each step is wide and that your opposite knee touches the floor when you come down. This will give you a better stretch and target your glute muscles more.

I prefer doing 5 sets times 10 reps, or going real heavy with 10 sets times 10 reps of walking lunges. I guaranty you will feel sore the next few days. I only do these once a week, but would not suggest more than twice per week. Here are some tips for getting the most out of walking lunges.
Walking Lunges are by far one of the best butt building exercises you could perform to build bigger rounder glutes quickly and effectively. Most would argue that squats are the one and all for building huge glutes. But I would beg to differ.

Let me ask you this. Would you do pull-ups to build bigger biceps? Some would answer yes to this question. However, the primary muscles used are the back muscles, and the secondary muscles used are the biceps. So the answer would be no.

Would you do bench presses to build bigger triceps muscles? No. The primary muscles used for this exercise are the chest muscles, or pectoral muscles. The chest is the primary muscle group used for this exercise, and the triceps are the secondary muscles.
