    Squats with Weights

    Sidestep down a long hallway with deep squats in-between each step. Ideally, 10 steps. Don’t forget to push the tush out; that’s when you’ll feel the burn.

    Platypus Walk

    Assume a plié position. Keeping legs bent, slowly take 10 steps forward, then back to original spot. This move is great for the booty, but also for tackling that tricky inner thigh muscle. Repeat 5 times.

    Scissor Kick

    Balance body over an exercise ball, centering over core, starting with legs together and toes just above the floor. Proceed to lift legs in a V-shape, then lowering down for a quick toe touch. Repeat 20 times.

    Sumo Kick

    My personal favorite—and targets the legs, too. Begin at a deep squat position, tush out. Swing one leg outward (as if on a hinge), then finish with a side kick. Repeat with the opposite leg. Repeat 20 times for each leg.

    Switch Lunge

    This move is not a favorite because it burns the most! Begin in a lunge position, then quickly switch legs back and forth. Do this for a full minute.
