Dig in your heels to firm the backside
This simple muscle-tightening maneuver is one of the best ways to firm your buttocks and the backs of your thighs. To challenge these large muscles, you have to push your heels down hard. That creates "targeted tension" in the back of your body, but avoids overworking the already strong muscles in the front.
