1. Stationary Lunges With Hip Extension
In addition to toning your legs, lunges work the butt, and adding a hip extension—where you lift your leg up and behind you after each lunge—targets the butt even more.
With feet hip-width apart, step right leg behind you, balancing on the ball of your foot, right heel up. Bend both legs, lowering toward the floor into a lunge. As you return to standing, lift your right foot off the floor, leg straight and toe rotated slightly out. Squeeze your butt, holding your leg in the air for three seconds. Return right foot to floor; complete set before repeating on the other side.
Tip: Make sure your feet are far enough apart so your front knee stays aligned over your ankle as you lower yourself into the lunge.
