    I just saw this today on a show I was 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.

    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.

    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.
