I've started doing deep squats (2x week) and leg presses (seldom) and it's shrinking my butt instead of making it bigger.
I'm a 22yo man, 5'7", 140 pounds, and even though my body is naturally athletic I've always had some fat on my butt. My waist is 29" and my butt used to be 38". After less than 1 month of squats it shrunk down to less than 37", even though I haven't lost weight.
WHY would that be if I'm using heavy weights??? I do squats with 100 pounds and leg presses with 300.
Could the workout be burning the fat and so making the the butt flater? What can I do to make it bigger? At this point getting those 2" back would make me more than happy
