You may have seen supermodels Karlie Kloss and Gisele Bündchen performing lunges on their Instagram pages. Well, this is surprise. This exercise not only firms up your legs, but your core, too. It also improves your balance and flexibility, especially around your hips. And if you add jump lunges, you’ll also improve your cardio health.

1 BASIC LUNGE

  2. Raise yourself up and return your leg to the starting position.
  3. Repeat on the other side.
