Most women want a flat stomach and a BIG bouda, so how you get it?

My wife goes to the gym almost everyday and keeps asking how she can get a flatter stomach and a bigger buttocks, what Haitians call "gwo bouda!"

There are many videos on you youtube with workouts for a bigger butt. I even saw a 3 minute butt workout but, after watching this video, my wife told me she does that everyday and seems to be getting the results she is looking for.

If you have you own exercise that give you a flatter tummy and a very nice looking bouda, please share!
