are a great way to work your lower half, but if you're ready for something new, try this move to engage your glutes, legs, and core muscles in a whole new way.
To do it: Stand on your right leg and lift your left knee up to about hip height. Bend your right knee slightly and begin to hinge forward at your hips as you extend your left leg behind you and reach your left arm out in front of you.
Continue to lower your chest until it's parallel to the ground (keep your focus to the floor) and bring left your arm to the outside of your ear (palm facing in). Your body should resemble a letter 'T' in this position as you bend your right knee as much as you can (as shown).
From here, straighten your right knee and slowly return to start position, trying to keep your left foot off the floor as you bend your knee and bring it back in front of your body. That's one rep. Do 10 reps on one side before switching to your other leg for 10 more.
Options: If it's too hard to balance the entire time, tap your left foot on the floor at any point or hold onto a wall with your right hand. For more of a challenge, try holding a dumbbell in your right hand, keeping your arm extended down by your right leg as you move in and out of your 'T' position (and then switch hands when you change legs).
