Default I have the saggiest bum I have ever seen-help please?

lumpy, saggy you name it. I think it needs its own crutch to lift it. I never noticed it till I saw it as is in the locker room at the gym. WOAH. I'm not disgusted but I am shocked.
Anyone notice that with working out that their bum starts um looking a bit more perky or just overall better? How many weeks did it take you? My knee is better so I will start tomorrow morning.

I listened to my gut and it said "You could do with less of me."

I have seen pictures of girls who used the Brazilian butt lift videos and they were pretty impressive.
Celebrate every small victory!

Weight lifting (and not with 5lb pink dumbells) is your best bet along with continued fat loss.

I would also suggest glute activation exercises, like glute bridges or hip thrusts. You can check on the internet exercises from Bret Contreras, they call him "Glute Guy".

Check a link from T nation called Dispelling the glute myth, there is a lot of information there.

I have a problem with my butt as well. I definitely think that with enough exercise we can improve our shape, it's impossible not to. Since you go to a gym ask one of the trainers working there what machines you should use or what exercises to focus more on. People who work at gyms are usually happy when clients come up to them and ask for advice and they're happy to help.

Losing weight has made a big difference for me. I don't do that many squats, but I use the elliptical machine almost every day at a maximum resistance of 100, so it's intense and I change my angle a lot on it so that often times, I'm really working that area. Here's another position I love. Lie down flat on your back with your knees bent. Lift your butt up into the air so that you're elevated almost to your shoulders and squeeze as hard as you can. Lower and lift about 10-15 times. Rest and repeat. I hope my description makes sense.

First goal: under 180:
Second goal: 175 or below:
Third goal: 168 (no longer overweight):
Fourth goal: 160 or below:
Final goal: 145-155 (not sure if this will ever happen):

Dead lifts and straight legged deadlifts, too. Don't neglect your hamstrings. Better definition in the whole rear end, not just bum.

squats! My butt is better shaped now after doing so many squats and deadlifts. It was flat before and now it's round.

It's still a bit "saggy" because I have a little bit loose skin there, but it's shaped really nice under that loose skin!
