Thumbs up Does running make your butt larger?

I'm a 17 year old male. I weigh 70 kilos and I'm 1,76 cm long. The question is if running make the butt muscles larger, since mine already are large. Or do they get smaller whilst the other leg muscles grow?

running is a great fat burner and especially for the butt which should make it smaller

Running tones muscle, it doesn't really put on mass. Like zooropa said, it does burn a lot of fat, so it will help make it *look* smaller while retaining the muscle.

Of the more popular forms of cardio, which do you think is the most effective at burning fat? I used to run but even with great running shoes, my knees eventually started killing me. Right now I'm riding the bike and am wondering if that's better or worse than running. I also have a big butt I'd like to melt off and if running would do a better job of burning fat, then I'll gladly endure the knee pains again.

running is the BEST at burning fat, rollerblading is pretty good too. If you decide to run again see runnersworld for some ideas on how to aviod pain.... even the best running shoes can cause pain for you if they are not the right shoes for you.. ie the expensive shoes are generally motion control shoes and are great for folks with low arches/flat foot,(over pronators) someone with a high arch(underpronators) would need a cushioning shoe since the expensive motion control shoe would not allow their foot to roll like its supposed to and strain on the joints could result.

Happy Trails

Running is definitely King in this arena, but the stress on shins and knees for me isn't worth it... not all the time. I do cardio every day and I run 2 to 3 times a week. Often, I will just do interval sprinting for 20 to 40 minutes, and that seems to cover some damage control. Shorter spurts of high intensity seem to stave off knee and lower leg pain for me.
The rest of the time I prefer the eliptical trainers. It simulates the running movement closely enough and it keeps my heartrate high. The eliptical cross trainers are also cool because you can incorperate the arms some... or none. I have shied away from stationary bikes, as I don't feel it really forces me to push and uses fewer muscles, but I will do it on occasion for a change or for a warm up.
