Lift It: Carving Curl

Trim It: Second-Position Pulse
Targets glutei maximus, medius, and minimus, and legs
Stand with feet wide, toes turned out, left hand holding chair back for support, right hand on hip.
Bend knees 90 degrees out to sides and, maintaining squat, open legs wider by pressing knees back 1 inch; then bring them back. Do 10 presses.
Lift toes off floor in squat position; do 10 more presses.
Finish with 10 presses on toes with heels lifted.

Standing Leg Curl
Targets: Hamstrings and calves
Stand with feet together and place rolled-up mat (or towel) evenly behind right knee so that it's parallel to floor. Lift right foot behind you with toes pointed, and pull heel toward butt to secure mat behind knee.

Do 20 reps, keeping leg lifted, then lower butt to floor. Switch legs; repeat.

Squat Dip
