Reverse Lunge

What it hits: Quads, Hamstrings, Glutes and Calves

Crash course: One of the most effective lower-body exercises to strengthen glutes and quadriceps, which in turn can speed up your metabolism.

Make it work: Stand straight, chest up, hands by side. Step right foot back into a 90-degree angle while making sure your left knee does not go past your toe. Stand back up in the starting position. Repeat with left foot stepping back.

The rules: 15-20 reps on each leg
