    squats. If you have pinterest, look up squats and there are tons of variations of squats you can do with and without weights. I do HIIT [high intensity interval training] with running/walking for my cardio. My thigh muscles are ridiculous. I do squats and lunges to make my butt bigger/toned. Kettle bell workouts are also extremely good for strengthening your entire body..arms, back, legs, butt. I get a ton of my workouts off pinterest though.

    Try Yoga. Helps with Core and strength.

    You can't spot reduce. Your body will burn fat off belly, butt, hips, thighs, etc if you start exercising and dieting. How much of your butt is fat and how much is muscle? There lies the answer. If most of its volume is due to fat, you'll lose it by dieting. Cycling is a great butt exercise, but it doesn't make it any bigger IMO, just perkier.

    I second the yoga. I lost a ton of weight a few years ago and still have a nice rear (men say so lol). It shrunk some, but yoga does a lot to strengthen those muscles so its firmer and has an even nicer shape.

    While it's true you can't "spot reduce". In my experience with weight loss, if you had the butt before the belly, the butt will be the last to go. And yes......squats will keep the beautiful butt lifted.
