Ways to tighten up that rear end. (KFSN)

Walking, running, and climbing are all exercises that work the gluteal muscles. Strength training that targets these muscles can help give you a tighter, more rounded look. Adding a few butt-busting moves, like squats and lunges, tone and tighten.

The squat tops every list of butt-sculpting exercises. It directly works the gluteal muscles. You can build or tone these muscles based on how much weight you use, and the number of repetitions.

Proper form for a squat: While keeping your feet parallel and shoulder-width apart, slowly lower your hips as if sitting in a chair. Then, return to standing. Make sure your knees do not push go over your toes. Keeping your torso tight and back straight in your routine will result in visible change. Placing a large exercise ball between your back and a wall can help with balance while you master the form.

Side lunge: This exercise targets the muscles on the outside of the hips, the gluteal muscles, and also tones the inner thighs.

For each of these exercises, aim for 2 sets of 15 to 20 repetitions.

Try to do each exercise three times a week, in addition to cardio exercise. Stay diligent with your workout and you will be happy with your results.
