Toned Legs: Lunges


Lunges are a great way to tone your legs and butt! Start with your legs and feet together while holding 5 to 10 pound weights in each hand (weights are optional). Take a large step forward and make sure your knee is not over your toes (your leg should be at a 90 degree angle). Then slowly push back to your starting position and repeat. Start with 10 to 15 reps on each leg.
