2. Squats

Squats not only burn calories, they also produce muscle. By doing squats you will work all of the leg muscles, including the quadriceps, hamstrings and lower leg muscles.

You can add dumbbells to traditional squats to intensify this exercise further. 

Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold dumbbells (optional) down by your sides, palms facing in. Keeping your back straight, bend from the knees and hips as though you are sitting down. Don't let your knees move forward over your toes, then return.

Perform 1-3 sets of 8-15 repetitions, depending on your fitness level.
