Lose overall body fat. Cellulite is just a fancy word for fat that's hanging out in the wrong place at the wrong time.
With that said. Do squats, and lunges, and single leg/split squats!

as for the fat loss.... well its all in your diet and cellulite is genetic. Post up your diet and we can give you some more insight.SFW and GFH

Reverse curls are more isolating than squats. Plus you get that unique burn that hurts so good!

You cannot "spot" reduce. It is from an overall clean diet and exercise plan. Spot reducing is a big myth. It will come in time from your diet and exercise if you stay with it.

or you can just look through the site and find a bunch for free. or a bunch of ideas...
My theory is if you can't kill it or grow it or harvest it then you probably shouldn't be eating it.

to help tone you butt i believe their call butt thrusters you lay on the ground in the position you would to do crunches but instead of a crunch lay your back flat on the ground and thrust your hips upward so from your knee caps to your head your entirely slanted other sites have em and you tube for the exact pic to see what it looks like cant spot reduce fat overall need to eat clean and lots of cardio sadly so good luck on your quest and congrats on the baby

true it is not meant only for fat loss also for endurance, leg toning and hell some people just love to run, just saying that it also is used for fat loss, whenever i have cut down on weight i incorporate lots of cardio and HIIT and thats my way to cut down, and yes diet is key!

I would highly suggest that you look at your diet, and clean that up, and get into a regular regime.
As for 'toning' your butt, the best thing for building up a high, tight butt (I'm assuming that's what you're asking) is to run stairs. You can do other exercises as well to aid in building the muscle that will make it "look nice" (i.e. squats, lunges, deadlifts, etc.)

Since you just had a baby and not the ok yet from your Dr. The best thing to do is getting your nutrition under control. Another consideration is if your nursing you still want to make sure to get enough calories and nutrients in your diet. Once you get the ok from your Dr. Start slowly with some light resistance training and cardio. Be careful not to over due in the beginning. You will will gradually be able to train a little harder.
I also agree running stairs is great for the butt.

I don't think she gives a f**k about how to tone her butt anymore
Just another New year resoultionary who wants to change but when they find out what they need to do, well, it can wait, till next year
She already started another thread in the diet section and I gave her a basic program to follow, no follow up.
If you look at her profile, you can find the thread she started.

If you are breastfeeding then you wil burn more calories anyway. If you start to heavy of an exercise regime this early you could start bleeding again.
Maybe start by either putting baby in a stroller or sling and doing some moderate walking.
Without knowing if you are breastfeeding it is impossible to give diet advice and how far out postpartum you are. Stitches and leg work would be a bad thing.
