As a woman, how can I tone my butt?

Women have more trouble firming up the backside than any other area of the body. This is the first place women tend to store fat, making it especially difficult to tone. Worse yet, this region is prone to cellulite, bringing about the dreaded "cottage cheese" appearance.

But by combining training with a proper nutritional regimen, you can sculpt these muscles to create an enviable posterior. If your butt is flat, you can shape it to give a rounded appearance.
