Basic exercises will help begin the firming and shaping process. Consider walking, swimming, or jumping rope. Also good are hiking, using a stair stepper, or riding a bike. All of these will help firm the buttocks and will also provide you with a good cardiovascular workout as well. Specific exercises to try are Squats, Lunges, Step Ups, Deadlifts, Kneeling Kickback, and Pelvic lifts.

Build up until you are comfortable exercising four to five times a week with each exercise session lasting 45 minutes or more. To avoid boredom, alternate the exercises so your workout does not become routine and stale. The most important aspect of your exercise program is to simply do it.
