Songs about ladies' backsides have long been a staple of club music. They're fun, rowdy, and upbeat, which also makes them perfect for exercise. That's why we compiled the best booty-shaking tracks into this workout playlist, so you can slim down-or round out-what your mama gave you.

As you might expect in a booty-oriented playlist, most of tunes come courtesy of gentleman admirers. Leading the charge is Sir Mix-a-Lot, whose "Baby Got Back" is making waves once again, as it provides the foundation for Nicki Minaj's latest hit, "Anaconda." While most new rap tracks hover between 80 and 100 beats per minute (BPM), faster tempos were the norm back in the day. To that end, if you're looking for running material, "Baby Got Back," "Tootsee Roll," and "Thong Song" all clock in above 120 BPM.

For slower, toning exercises-like squats, lunges, or leg extensions-look no further than the more recent tracks, including Major Lazer, Bruno Mars, Tyga, and Mystic's irrepressible "Bubble Butt" or Jason Derulo and Snoop Dogg's summertime smash "Wiggle." Lastly, joining the fellows in their curve appreciation, you'll find Fergie cashing in on the merit of her humps, while the women of Destiny's Child wonder if the world is ready for their bootyliciousness.

In all, songs about bottoms are really songs about movement. They're packed with constant encouragement to move it, shake it, roll it, wiggle it, back it up, drop it low, and so on. While the emphasis may be about looking sexy and rocking the dance floor, you could just as easily channel the bouncing beats and booty enthusiasm into your next workout. So, if you're ready to push some tush, here are 10 tracks to get you started.

Major Lazer, Bruno Mars, Tyga & Mystic - Bubble Butt - 100 BPM

Sir Mix-a-Lot - Baby Got Back - 129 BPM

Juvenile, Lil Wayne & Mannie Fresh - Back That Azz Up - 96 BPM

Destiny's Child - Bootylicious - 104 BPM

Sisqo - Thong Song - 122 BPM

The Black Eyed Peas - My Humps - 124 BPM

Mystikal - Shake Ya Ass - 98 BPM

Bubba Sparxxx, Ying Yang Twins & Mr. Collipark - Ms. New Booty - 97 BPM

69 Boyz - Tootsee Roll - 134 BPM

Jason Derulo & Snoop Dogg - Wiggle - 82 BPM

I bought these headphones to use on a cross-country flight for work, since I wanted a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones. I really enjoyed them, they are very comfortable, and enclose my ears completely. The noise-cancelling function works really well, it made the engine noise disappear, and I was able to enjoy the movie I was watching without turning the volume all the way up.Great headphones for the money. I would definitely recommend them. check the products HERE : http://boseworkout.com

Did you know that the female body has 9 times more Alpha (fat storing) than Beta (fat-burning) receptors? So, every time a Beta receptor tries to release fat, it has to fight 9 Alpha receptors that try to store fat back in. That's why it's so difficult to sculpt the lower body. I really struggled with my pear-shaped body, until i found a way to reduce estrogen dominance. Read my story here ==> http://bit.ly/aboutmyweightloss
