  • Squats and lunges!! They're even better if you can buy one of those balls. If you stand against the wall (with the ball between your back and the wall) and just do squats with your knees never passing your ankles (when you squat, you should bend that your legs never go past a 90 degree angle, it really works out your butt and your quads. Also, stand in front of a dining room chair (tall backed chair, some desk chairs would work, nothing with wheels) and swing your one leg in front of you and then out to the side repeatedly and switch. Then, with the chair, bend your leg straight back (bending your knee) as far as you can go and bring back forward bringing your knee to your chest. Don't forget to keep your postures and do it several times and switch. This also isolates certain butt muscles. With the one where you swing your leg from side to side, always keep your upper body facing forward!! Good luck!

  • Hold on to a chair, tilt your pelvis under while lifting your abdominals, and keeping tilted, bring the leg straight backwards slowly (count to 5) hold, and down slowly, It is even better if you have an ankle weight (don't want to buy one? try sliding a bag or so of beans etc into a knee sock and tie that onto your ankle.) Start with about 10 slow repetitions on each leg, and increase. Another good one for the buttocks is to kneel on the floor in table position- hands and knees- keep your torso flat, extend your leg backwards, bend the knee so that the sole of the foot is facing the ceiling, lift the foot toward the ceiling, same slowness, same numbers, as above. Keep your pelvis level in this one.

  • I love yoga. It slims and trims. Squats and lunges build up muscle and make u bigger.
