Here are some good exercises for a well shaped and strong booty. There are some weird ideas about "butt rescuplting" that we don't necessarily agree with at the end but the exercises are good. :)
We also don't like the part that talks about 'using cardio to not "bulk up"'. In theory that is true. However, most women don't have the testosterone levels to get that non feminine "bulked up" look. And we should definitely not be scared to build our muscles! It is essential to our current and future health and well being.
So work hard and be awesome!
Read here about ways to treat and prevent shin splints! Exercises such as seated toe taps and seated heel raises also help to gently strengthen the muscles around the shins. Don't be discouraged by them because there are many ways to exercise and not be bothered by them while they heal.

You should include BALANCE TRAINING in all of your workouts.
Ideally right after warming up and right before cooling down
(after you are more fatigued).
A simple balance exercise is put your feet together, close your eyes
and just hold your balance while you move your head around.
