    Can anyone give me some good excercises for toning bum and thighs? I know bum 'walking' is meant to be good, but what do others suggest? I have a small waist and flat tum but my gluteous maximus and thighs need work lol

    Squats and lunges seriously are the BEST exercises for toning those areas, try doing 3 sets of 20 of each and you should start to see the difference. I have also been told star jumps work those hard to reach bum muscles that otherwise generally do nothing much at all but i dont know how true that is

    I agree with vodaka about squats and lunges-they are fantastic for toning the glutes and thighs. A website that I really like for exercises is Fitness on SELF.com. There are tutorials for various exercises that guide you through the techniques and assist with proper form.

    Riding a bike makes a difference too! :) Since I started doing 40 minutes 3 times a week on the statioary bike at the Gym- my shape changed quite dramatically & that was without a lot of weight change too. I was trying to cut down, but not as seriously dieting as I am now! ;)

    I'm not really sure why my post above showed up twice, and I can't figure out how to delete it. Sorry-I hate double posts. They're annoying.
