Fight flab from your abs down to your calves with these proven lower-body toners.
Many exercisers miss out on much of the butt-shaping magic of lunges because of common flubs that make legs do all the work, according to trainer Rich Barretta. Use his foolproof how-to and, ahem, firm the other cheek.
- Lower straight down. "Focus on the up-and-down movement rather than the forward motion to really target the glutes," Barretta says. "Put a hand on your butt and sit down into it as a cue."
- If knee isn't behind toes, step farther.
- Land on heel. (Be able to wiggle toes.)
