    Than maybe some squats with weights too point your toes away from you shoulders in a plies stance to really target the butt!
    You have to be careful you are doing squats properly. You can't let your knees go past your toes. The best way to train yourself is to put a chair behind you and go to sit down in it. but just tap your but lightly on the chair (do not sit down or rest your butt on the chair) and stand back up. As you stand back up, squeeze your butt and hold it until you do your next one.

    A couples tricks:
    1- if you feel like you're losing your balance, lean your upper body forward and put your arms out in front of you to help keep your balance. Do it in front of a mirrior so you can see whether or not your knees go past your toes.

    2- When you're going to squat, stick your butt out as far as you can. It will take the strain off your knees and put it all on your thighs and you butt. And will help you maitain the best form.

    The squat...there is a science to it!

        I agree with the other girls...squats and lunges. If you have a long mirror I recommend trying these in front of the mirror to make sure you have the correct form and try to keep your weight in your heels. Another great move is donkey kicks- these kill my butt. Once you have master the squat try pop squats!!! For cardio I run stairs a couple days a weeks- this works awesome for toning the buns!!! hope this helps & good luck

          The exercise that I feel in my butt the most are "step ups." You need a step & some weights. Leave one foot on the step the whole time & step up & down with the other. It's sort of like a lunge. After 10-15, switch legs. It really works better if you leave one foot planted the entire time, not alternating steps. I do squats, deadlifts, & lunges all the time, but this is the workout that really makes me sore.

          keep good form like with lunges. Don't let your knees pass your toes.

            Pilates will do wonders for toning EVERYTHING. I swear by it.

            Squats... the sure fire way to get a booty. High reps will do the trick.
