Wanna build your butt – SQUAT. Old-school multi-joint exercises are the best way to build proportional muscles. Squats and deadlifts are the best for building all over strength – and will keep your back and core strong. Best core workout I’ve ever had – front squats. I would suggest learning a proper back squat – make sure you are getting at least to parallel, and focus on form. Sets of <8 are optimal for building muscle.

Squatting with a bar is the best way to learn proper form and keep your chest up. Check out this video on how to do a proper hi-bar back squat – olympic style ass-to-grass. (For reference I am a 125 lb olympic lifter – and can squat almost 2.5x bodyweight).

@rosegoldie:  You might want to try CrossFit then!  crossfit.com  It incorpoates alot of Olympic weight lifting.  I went for three years, and now I just do it at home in my basement but I learned all the forms.

Make sure you’re getting enough protein and carbohydrates to adequately fuel your workouts if you’re going to be going heavier.

Crossfit has been the reason I’ve put on a lot of muscle mass and I love it!
