Amp up your leg exercises with the Hover Lunge. This lunges exercise not only tones and tightens your quads and hamstrings, it also exercises your hips, butt, and abs. For this leg exercise, keep your balance by gripping the back of a chair or standing near a wall. Place a small ball between your calf and thigh, squeezing your muscles to keep it in place. With your knee at hip level, lower into a lunge position and move your leg—ball and all—behind you. Come back up to a standing position and focus on contracting your abs to bring your leg back to hip height. Perform 30 reps on each side.
