As a personal trainer I have many female clients that share your desire for a more toned and shapely backside. There are several exercises that will target your butt and these are a few of my favorites:
Remember to follow a healthy nutrition plan, participate in a resistance training program, and perform cardiovascular exercise on a regular basis so you can see the results of your hard work.
A great exercise to help firm your glutes will be to complete bridges:
Your glutes are your body’s largest and most powerful muscle group. Training these muscles will make you stronger in your lifts, enhance athletic performance, reduce risk of injury, and give you a shapely bum. Two exercises that target your glutes are cable pull throughs and barbell hip thrusts.
You can find examples of both of these great exercises on youtube.
I am a woman and trainer in her 40's who desires a nice sculpted backside. Squats are great. Lunges are great too, but you need to have good balance for lunges. I have a Stairmaster for my cardio so that helps, but remember good 'ole leg lifts? I watch a YouTube video everyday called 8 Minutes Buns. Love it. Works great and it's free.

The butt is a "trouble spot" for many women - myself included. The good news is there are endless exercises you can do to help tone and shape your butt.
Some of my personal favorite exercises for targeting the butt area include:
The key to making sure you are really targeting the butt is to always make sure you are pushing through your heels instead of the toes when performing the exercises listed above. Pressing through the toes will target more the front of the thighs so always concentrate on pressing through the heels when standing up from squats, lunges, deadlifts and other butt exercises.
