Re: hips and glutes

Glute ham raises would be great for adding muscle. As far as "toning" I'd suggest a good diet.

Re: hips and glutes

Heavy squats are good for the posterior chain both toning and strengthening.

^^^that. Squats, deadlifts, etc. are all great for the posterior chain. Before you know it, you'll have problems finding the right pants that fit!

Yeah, that whole pants thing is true...and can be a pain in the newly developed posterior when you have a 33-inch waist but have to shop for 35/36-inch pants to fit everything else...
