Walking up hill or stairs (I do the bleachers at the high school track) and walking lunges. ALSO LEG LIFTS LYING ON MY BACK ARE GOOD.

I liked this exercise that was on one of the spark videos. You lie on your back with your feet on a ball. Then you roll the ball away from you and bridge up. Yeah, check the video she can show you better than I can explain it. I think it's the butt blaster one.

If you have access to a gym, the stairmaster and going backwards on the elliptical are great butt/thigh workouts.

My husband and I did a polymetric track work out the other day and my hamstrings (back of the legs) are SCREAMING! We did a combination of 1-4 sets of the following exercises that you could do in your own back yard!
~Walking Lunges
~Super Skipping (skipping but jumping as high as you can on the skip)
~Walking High Kicks (every step kick one leg up as high as you can to meet your hand - arms out straight in front)
~Jumps(just stand w/ your feet together squat and jump as far as you can~ kinda like a frog!)
~Running backwards
~Mountain climbers.
~etc.
I thought it was really fun, because we were constantly changing to a new move. I didn't get bored and BOY! What a work out. You can see the whole work out by checking out my sparkpage fitness log on 4/16.
Good Luck!

lay on your stomach on bed or floor and put the soles of your feet together then bend knees bringing heels to butt and tighten! I do 20-40 (2 sets) and the next morning....IT'S SORE! But soreness means it's working right!!! Just from that one move I can now say I actually have butt definition...the cheek doesn't mesh with the thigh as if it is one!

Dealifts, deep squats, and lunges will help a ton with strength in those areas, and muscle tone will help a lot once you've lost fat. To lose fat in the area, though, you have to lose it everywhere.

Doing deadlifts will help tighten up your hamstrings. You can do them with dumbbells at home. Here is a link (although not a very good one) on how to do them: www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Hamstrings/DB

It doesn't look like much, but they do work!

The one exercise that I've found to really make me notice that I've worked that area is to lie in front of a chair, put your feet in the chair and lift your butt. It's like a reverse plank. Hold for 5-10 secs and relax. Repeat.

I just hate my thighs in GENERAL and I've been trying diff. thigh workouts but I'm not sure if I'm gaining muscle/losing fat - I'm so confused on how to tell what's really working down there.

the back of my legs are not too pretty, anyone know how to tighten the back up, the front is not too bad.
i should say the top back of my thigh.
