Squats are a great exercise for your glutes and your legs. Just make sure that you're pressing down with your heels and not with your toes. Don't want to strain your knees or ankles. A good trick is lifting your toes up to make sure you're not using the balls of your feet.
Make sure you're stretching before and warming up as well. And if you need a spotter, get one. Better safe than sorry.
