    I just saw this today on a show I was watching....do backward lunges. another thing they mentioned is to get on all fours and lift your leg back and up. Squats also work great...and when you do them, focus on pushing your heels down into the floor as you rise up to really tighten the muscles.

    Check out Bret Contreras' work (he has a blog and also posts articles on T-nation) - he is probably the world's leading expert on glute training.

    His EMG research showed that the single leg bent leg reverse hyper, hip thrust, p and endulum quadruped hip extension were the top 3 exercises in terms of glute activation.

    I would recommend squats with weights and also forward and backward lunges.  Another good exercise is to lay flat on your back with your knees bent and feet on the floot. Then use your legs to lift your behind up into a bridge position release  back to the ground and start over.

    To develop the gluteus maximus and the upper portion of the hamstring muscles, most bodybuilders do squats and lunges. However, most of the results are seen in the hamstrings since most individuals do not go deep enough to tax the glutes. The glutes... read more

    Don't forget hip hyperextension, some top end speed running once your fit enough for that. Some plank position leg lifts and full depth atg squats really stimulate my glutes.
