I'm new to this site and new to bb altogether! Although I have been 'athletic' my whole life I've focused pretty much entirely on cardio until now.
Anyways, the area just below my bottom is one of my biggest trouble areas. I've been doing exercises to target my butt and my hamstrings but it never feels like I'm working the uppermost part of my back leg (not sure what the correct terminology is).
If anyone has any tips on strength training or even cardio exercises that will specifically target this area I'd love to know!
Keep up the good work everyone!

Thanks for the advice. I do realize I need to slim down a bit before I'm gonna see a difference but I'm hoping that doing a little extra training in that area will help me achieve results a little faster.
Like I mentioned earlier, I've done mostly cardio. I'm a little intimidated by what I've misguidedly dubbed the 'boys side' of the gym. (I know, shame on me). Since I don't have any experience in weight lifting would you all recommend I get a personal trainer to show me how to properly use the weights/machines? I'm pretty shy and a little embarrassed but I'm figuring out that I have to get over that if I want to get in the shape I'm looking to achieve. I guess what I'm asking is how to really get started.
Also, has anyone gotten good results in this area using a stairmaster? I tested out one today and boy I think I'm gonna feel it tomorrow :P

Don't be afraid to just ask the trainers or check with your front desk to see if they offer an orientation. Even if you've been there for a while go ahead and ask. Most gyms offer an orientation now for all new members and they walk you through using the machines and setting things up. Don't be embarrassed. There are no dumb questions.******************
