I love at-home exercises for several reasons.

First, you can do them in the privacy of your own home.

Second, who cares if your legs arenโ€™t shaved and youโ€™re a sweaty mess?

Third, I can watch TV whilst doing them.

And finally, itโ€™s free and easy to do!

Here a few suggestions for at-home exercises.

1. Lunges

Lunges are one of my favorite at-home exercises and anyone can do them regardless of their workout level.

Your beginning pose should be with both your feet side-by-side and together.

Next, using only one leg at a time, step forward and bend you knee.

The leg that you did not use to step forward should now be bent at a 90 degree angle.2

Also, your knee should not be touching the floor.

Hold this pose for a few seconds and step back to your original, or โ€œresting,โ€ position.

Finally, alternate between legs.

Lunges can be done with or without weights depending on your workout level.

2. Donkey Kicks

Donkey kicks are a fool-proof way to get a better looking butt!

First, get on your hands and your knees โ€“ your hands should be aligned with your shoulders and you knees should be aligned with your hips.

Second, โ€œkickโ€ one of your legs backwards by slowly raising your leg backwards but keeping it bent.

Your final position should be with one of your legs bent at a 90 degree angle, in the air, with your foot flexed and parallel to the ceiling.

Hold for a few seconds before returning your leg back to its resting position on the floor.

Repeat this 15-30 times for each leg.

3. Squats

Squats are a must for all workouts!

Unfortunately, they look easy but there are a lot of things to avoid.

Essentially, squats are when you stand up straight, bend your knees to lower your body, and then return to a standing straight position.

However, itโ€™s more complicated than that.

First, your feet should be aligned with your shoulders.

Second, when bending your knees they should never go past your toes!

Third, keep your back straight as much as possible (imagine youโ€™re sitting down in a chair) and do not stick your butt out.

Fourth, keep your weight distributed in your thighs and in the heels of your feet.

Fifth, never use your knees to lower your body when doing squats.

Who knew something so simple took so much work!
