This article says these twins do 2000 squats per day. I'm up to 75. I squat straight down, then straight up, even holding a 5 lb weight behind my back. My jeans only feel tight around my thighs. What am I doing wrong?

4 foot butts

    Doing squats with your feet facing more towards parallel can work the glutes more instad of the quads. and more importantly as JJosaur points out, it's not JUST squats, it's a whole diet and exercise regime that they've been doing for years. It will take time and effort to get similar results.

  • This is a very strange thing to aspire to. But, to each, his own.

1 Answer 1


Where to begin...

Lets assess what is right:

  • Squats are a great exercise to build muscle in the glutes (butt).
  • To build muscle in a specific area, you need to use weights to build up the muscle in that area.

What is wrong:

  • Squats alone will get you a 'four foot butt'.
  • The pictured physique is healthy for you and your spine.

Taking a look at the article, there are some good points to take away:

the sisters sustain their fit frames using the regimen he created, which includes a mixture of boxing, weight training, MMA, plyometrics


A solid exercise routine is only half the battle for these two, as they maintain their 36-22-46 measurements with an identical diet of smoothies, salads, protein shakes and fat burners as well.

“We generally stick to a healthy diet and it’s the same all the time. We are very strict about this,” Miriam notes.

So in summary, these two ladies get their physique from:

  • Weightlifting
  • Boxing
  • MMA
  • Plyometrics
  • (implied) Bodyweight squats
  • High Protein Diet
  • Fat burning supplements
  • Genetics

All of the above contribute to their physique but I am confident that the key to their posterior size is down to:

  • Weightlifting
  • Plyometrics
  • Squats
  • High Protein Diet
  • Genetics

To answer your question "How do I get a four foot butt":

  1. Have good genetics
  2. Eat a lean, high protein diet matched to your workout regime
  3. Start weightlifting, squats, deadlifts are your key exercises here. You should be aiming to lift a significant amount of weight (up to and exceeding 1.5x your bodyweight.
  4. Work with a expert to develop a fitness plan.
  5. Exercise 5-6 times a week for substantial time.

To answer your question "Why are only my legs getting bigger"

Look at the size of their legs, they are huge. Squats work your quads a lot which explains your tight jeans.

To track your progress, get out a tape measure and take photos. You will not see the difference if you look in the mirror everyday.

  • Also, not to sling around accusations, but synthol injections into the buttcheeks and implants are also a thing. We might not always be looking at natural derrières when seeing pictures like that.

    I didn't mention that because the only evidence related to that was a quote stating that it was all natural in the article
