The 20-Minute Workout
Best Move for Your Legs: The Squat and Side LiftWhy it works: This engages the entire lower body―including gluteals, quadriceps, hamstrings, and outer thighs.
How to do it:
1. Start from a standing position, with feet together. Hold 8- to 10-pound dumbbells at your sides (or keep your hands on your hips). Take a step to the right with your right foot, so your feet are shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees for a count of two, lowering your rear end as if you’re going to sit in a chair.
2. Straighten your legs and slowly lift your right leg to the side for a count of two. Hold your abs in for balance. Lower your right leg as you bend both legs into a squat. Repeat 12 times, alternating the leg you lift to the side. On the last rep, hold at the bottom for eight counts, then pulse eight times.
