Make sure you take a balanced approach to working the shoulders. Often people neglect the back of the shoulders. You have to hit all aspects of this area to get a nice rounded shape. Some recommended exercises: the dumbbell shoulder press, dumbbell laterals, and rear dumbbell shoulder flies.

Also, you want to work the triceps more than the biceps. The triceps muscles are double the size of the biceps muscles. Developing the triceps muscles will help your posture. If the biceps muscles are too tight, the biceps pull the shoulders forward causing you to slouch.

Make sure you have balance between the muscles in the front of the thighs and the back of the thighs. Too often people neglect the hamstrings. You have to do a lot of unilateral leg exercises (where you use one leg at a time). These would include lunges, step-ups and single leg presses.

This is one of the most overworked muscle groups. The best way to get rid of the abs-covering layer of fat that many of us are saddled with: cardio exercise and a healthy diet. When the layer of fat is gone, you will begin to see the fruits of your labor. Variety is the key to working the abs. Use different exercises to work them. Some effective exercises include resist-a-ball crunches, hanging knee raises and double crunches.

There really are very few exercises that isolate the butt. But, you do work your butt when you work your legs. Lunges, step-ups and squats will not only tone your legs, but they'll also affect your bottoming out backside as well! Also, look for the butt-blaster machines which isolates the butt the best to me. You can do 4 sets of 15-20 repetitions and you will see a dramatic difference in you butt within 2 weeks of doing them.
