Exercise 1: Basic Squat With Side Leg Lift

Smooth out your lower love handles with this variation on the standard booty-burning squat.

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width distance apart, feet parallel. Hold your hands out in front of you for balance. Bend your knees, lowering your hips deeply so your thighs are parallel with the floor, keeping your weight back in your heels.
  • Then rise back up, straightening the legs completely and lifting the right leg out to the side, squeezing the outer glute.
  • As you step the foot back into shoulder-width distance position, squat down again. Then stand up and do a side leg lift on the left side. Lower the leg back to the starting position.
  • This counts as one rep. Perform as many controlled reps as you can for one minute.
