    Front squats, Squats, lunges, glute bridges should sort out your rear over time.
    Those who danced in the rain were thought insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

    Pictures always help us make our best professional recommendations to help you out....

    Lunges are a good easy way to start off though. Start with no weight and progress from there.

    I'm in the same boat. Just had two more kids and lost the weight and now instead of a tight butt, it is saggy *sigh*. I'm determined to get my butt back though. I'm on the Stronglifts program because I need to go back and almost start from scratch with my strength. However, I also do one day of just leg exercises that focus on the glutes -- the hip thrust with a barbell, one-legged squats, high step-ups, etc. Unfortunately, I do think the saggy butt thing comes with age and neglect of that area. You need to really start to target it.

    I was also running a lot for a while. I'd run about 3-4 times a week for at least 3 miles -- I think this contributed to my loss of butt mass. I'm not sure what you are doing, but if you are doing a lot of running, you may want to cut some of it down.

    In order to build, you'll need to make sure you aren't on a major caloric deficit as well, otherwise you won't get the results you want. There are calculations out there to help you build without gaining too much fat.

    Good luck!

    This is the Over 35 area, so gravity and tissue breakdown are beginning to win the battle.

    I actually remember reading an article about this a long time ago (soft tissue, not saggy butts). There's really not too much we can do in the way of our tissue become softer, so we're relegated to reducing our body fat and hitting the weights as much as possible. Then we pull the old "Hey, I'm old and don't care how I look" routine on people for good measure.

    Oh please - saggy butts is not age or child related - the kid grows in your uterus, not in your ass. Get your butt into a squat cage & squat. Do Romanian dead lifts - do them heavy & eat enough for muscle to grow.

    Good, straight forward advice right there. Especially this part, "do them heavy & eat enough for muscle to grow".

    Aside from plastic surgery and what not, I believe the evidence is pretty straightforward that age does play a major part in this "saggy butt" phenomenon. Like I stated earlier, it has to do with your muscle tissue becoming softer. That's not a problem that can be easily fixed.

    Having said that, it's no excuse to not hit the squats and throw your diet to the wind.

    This is the dumbest thing I ever heard, but I'm sure all the lazy improperly-nourished mom's out there are agreeing with you.

    Plus I don't know a singe PS out there who does "muscle hardening"

    The softening of muscle tissue over time? That's pretty much common knowledge in the medical field. Not sure where else to go with you on that one.

    EDIT: And in case anyone's selective reading disorder was kicking in on my posts: "it's no excuse to not hit the squats and throw your diet to the wind. " OP just needs to hit the squat rack and reduce her body fat. "Saggy Butt" will turn into "Sexually Overcharged Men Can't Keep Their Eyes Off My Butt" syndrome

    If you are referring to Sarcopenia, it's been proven that a lack of exercise is the biggest culprit.

    Only insofar as one ages, one tends to become less active. Less active = softer muscle tissue or more accurately stated, loss of muscle tissue. I do low-bar squats and the next day I feel the effects most in my glutes and hamstrings. My girlfriend likes to say that I have a football player's butt. IOWs, I don't have anything resembling a "saggy butt" and I'm pretty sure it's due to squatting.

    Having children can lead to saggy butt syndrome -- and I'm not talking about people who don't workout during pregnancy. I, for one, was jumping rope in my 8th month and still hitting the weights. Unfortunately, you simply can't lift as heavy when you are pregnant -- it becomes difficult. And you can't do as hard of cardio either. Sure, you can still do things, but not at the same intensity. Ask any runner if they could run as hard or fast when they were pregnant. Less cardio & weights, plus more calories and spreading hips (the bones) means you will lose muscle, stretch your skin and probably put on some fat. After about 4 kids -- yes, this can lead to saggy butt. Anyone who says otherwise has not had 4 kids.

    I didn't say it was irreversible once the child is born -- I simply said it happens.

    Just saying.

    Just hit the squats, OP, as exercise and diet can reverse the aging process like nothing else can (reduction in stress level is the most effective, and that is one of the side effects of being in shape, so there's that).

    You also wrote - incorrectly I might add:

    Since you persist in invoking "doctors" and medical literature in defense of your assertions, perhaps you should read this:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2804956/

    And pay special attention to where it concludes:
    Fortunately, aged muscle is still very plastic and can respond to anabolic stimuli by increasing its mass and strength. This knowledge is vital for designing interventions to reverse or attenuate the loss of muscle mass with aging and to improve functional abilities in the elderly.

Lost in all of this is the apparent answer to the OP's question (which I've stated multiple times as well as others): just hit the squat rack and quit putting so much jelly on your toast. Sorry I mentioned muscle fibers in the first place.

    Pet Peave: Forums contain too much arguing/debating and not enough information sharing/networking.

    EDIT: Had I initially stated to the OP, "Hey, don't sweat it. You're just getting old like the rest of us and there's nothing you can do about it because your tissue is getting softer", then yeah, it would warrant the amount of attention it's garnished. But I think we can move on now, since that's not what anyone in here is saying. Squats, diet & cardio, squats, diet & cardio, squats,...

    Absolutely this. No excuses. I'm 49 and have been able to improve this area drastically. Still a work in progress, but better now than ever. I highly recommend BB hip thrusts.
