    Butt doesn't burn after squats...

    ...am I doing them wrong? I stand with my feet slightly wider than shoulder width and go at least to parallel, lower if I can. Afterwards my thighs burn, but I don't feel anything in my glutes. Leg presses yield the same results.

    Any suggestions?

    Couple (at least) of options for you. Make sure you're getting a full contraction of your ass at the top of the lift. Alternatively, you can work your glutes separately with glute ham raises.

    BTW, your LEGS should burn after squats...or at least you should feel the exercise working them.

    Are you concentrating on sitting back into the squat. Some sit down into the squat and that is why they feel heavy quad recruitment. Sit back and you should feel more glute and hamstring involvement. If you still don't, add in some reverse lunges. These really hammer the glutes. Bulgarian squats are anothers.

    I don't get a pump or a burn anywhere when I do squats... except the rare occasion I don't feel like going heavy and dick around with higher reps. Even so my legs/ass have shown the most improvement compared to the rest of my body over the last year. Moral of the story you don't need to feel the burn to grow, just give it some time and keep moving more weight and your ass will grow.

    Other exercises that will help your ass situation and more importantly help you squat more:

    Good mornings
    Romanian deadlifts
    Cable pull throughs

    Listen to this guy. I dont get a burn anywhere when I do squats and I hardly get a leg pump, but I do get a good pump in my back. My legs and glutes have deffinately grown and my poundages are constantly increasing, you dont need to feel a pump or burn to grow, you just need to squat hard and heavy!
