It’s as simple to do as it looks, but infinitely more toning than you’d expect.

How To Do:

  • Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and your toes pointing out.
  • Bring your arms out straight in front of you and lower into a squat.
  • Come back up and repeat. Go as low into the squat as you can without letting your knees move past your toes.
  • Be sure to tuck your tailbone under and contract your glutes.
  • Keep your torso tall, and don’t let your knees creep past your toes. Do for 1 minute.
