The 20-Minute Workout
Best Move for Your Bottom: The One-Legged SquatWhy it works: As you lower your body, your weight is focused on the standing leg’s gluteal muscle.
How to do it:
1. Stand on your right leg, with your left leg bent; hold the back of a chair for balance. Keep your head and chest lifted.
2. Slowly lower your body for two counts, bending at the hip and right knee as if you’re sitting in a chair (be sure your knee doesn’t extend past your toes). Straighten the standing leg to a count of two, pressing up from your heel; repeat 12 times. On the final rep, hold in the lowered position for eight counts, then pulse eight times. Switch sides so you’re standing on your left leg with the right leg bent and repeat the entire set.
