Exercise Q&A: How to Tone Your Butt

Q. I've always heard that squats and lunges are great for your butt. However, when I do them, I only feel it in my thighs. Am I doing something wrong?

A. Failure to use proper exercise techniques is one primary reason most people don't achieve the results they are striving for. I will bet my life savings that your problem stems from not using a full range of motion. This is absolutely vital in to achieve mastery of the derriere. I see 99 percent of people doing these two exercises half- or quarter-way. Consult an exercise manual or hire a qualified expert to demonstrate the proper technique. And please start out slowly since the new added range of motion will take time to get used to.
