  • Side Lunges

Stand with feet and knees together, hands on the hips. Now, take a big step to the left, and bend your left knee at the end. Keep your right leg straight. Now push yourself back with your left leg to get back to the starting position, and do the same thing on the opposite side. 2 sets of 10-15 reps, on each leg. 

  • Squats

Stand straight, feet about shoulder-width apart. Now, place your arms straight in front of you, and start lowering your butt toward toward the floor. Make sure your knees don’t go in front of the toes, and then get back to the standing position. 2 sets of 15-20 reps.

  • Frog Squats

Spread your feet beyond shoulder-width apart. Now, place your hands in front of your body at arm’s length. Start the exercise by pushing your hips back, while bending your knees into a squat. Make sure you don’t let your knees go forward. Inhale while you squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Exhale while pushing yourself back to the starting position.
