Switch Lunge

What it hits: Core, Glutes, Hamstrings, Quads and Calves

Crash course: Switch lunges are one of the best ways to tighten up your butt and thighs. When performed correctly they recruit a high amount of muscle fibres at a higher rate of calorie burning.

Make it work: Lunge forward with your right thigh parallel to the floor; make sure your knee does not extend past your toe. Swinging your arms for balance, jump up and switch legs, landing in a lunge with your left foot in front. Again, make sure your knee does not extend past your toe.

The rules: 15 to 20 reps on each leg
