What are your favorite exercises for working your butt?

That is one area of my body that I am really not happy with and none of the exercises I've done (squats, deadlifts, glute bridges, kneeling squats) feel like they are really working my butt. I never feel sore no matter how hard I work. I'd really love to learn some more exercises that work your butt. I may just need to increase the weights on some of the exercises I'm doing and I know that I can feel it when I use the eliptical trainer so I may just need to improve on what I'm doing.

My 10 minute solution target toning video has a great butt section.

There is one that is a squat done on one leg. I'll try to describe it as I can't find an example on the internet. Standing with your legs parallel and just narrower than shoulder width apart, put all your weight onto one foot. Place the toes of your other foot about 8-10 inches infront of you. This foot is only used for balance. Try not to put any weight on it. Proceed with squats on the supporting leg concentrating on squeezing the glutes. (she does them 2 counts down/2 counts up, 1 count down/1 count up, and pulsing down for 3 counts/1 count up)

Another one on there is leg raises. Start on your hands and knees. Bring one leg up behind you until your thigh is parallel to the ground, knee bent so that the sole of your foot is facing the ceiling. From this point, press your leg up (it is a small movement and I find if I concentrate on pushing my upper hamstrings toward the ceiling I feel more in my glutes). Try to keep your abs engaged and hips level while doing this exercise. (she does 1 count up/1 count back to level, and pulsing 3 counts up/1 count back to level)

Leg extensions are also a good one. From a standing position, stretch one leg behind you so that it is still touching the floor. Keeping legs straight, raise and lower the leg that is pointed behind you. You can also pulse the leg in a raised position.

A tip for your bridges, concentrate really hard on squeezing your glutes together to get the emphasis off your hamstrings.

Hope that gives you some new ideas! I'll post if I think of any more.

Jillian Michaels has a butt and thigh dvd that I'm going to start in May. I'm sure there's tons of ideas on there! I'll have to let you know!
