Lunges is one of the best leg toning exercises, but this ballet-inspired lunge will shape those legs in half the time, says Laurie Alfano, Director of Education for Xtend Barre
in Boca Raton, Florida. To do it: put one leg forward and one back, making sure both heels are on the ground. Lift both heels up off the floor and then lunge down. Do 10 small pulses (raising up and down a few inches in each direction) before switching legs. Be sure to keep your chest lifted and abs in and if you need frontal support, grab a ballet barre or chair. “This short stance lunge ‘en releve’ (on the balls of the feet) will work the thighs, glutes, hamstrings and calves.”
