Taking cue from our fave superhero, do this exercise to feel like one, even if it is for a minute. Lie down flat on your tummy, stretching your hands and legs out. Now, lift your thighs and chest at the same time, forming a superman-like posture. Hold it for 3 seconds and go back to the initial position. Repeat the same thing for 30-60 seconds and you’re done!

2. Side Lunge
Stepping aside from the regular lunges, try the side one. Stand straight and keep your arms on your waist. Stretch your right leg out and touch your right hand to your left foot. Repeat the same with the other leg. Keep going with this routine for a good 2 minutes and slowly, you will get comfortable with it. Stick to a constant pace, neither too fast or slow. You can use a dumbbell for added motivation. It gives your butt great shape and strengthens the arms.
3. Jump Squats
Make your regular squats fun and addictive by adding jumps to them! It preps your body and is a great workout for your thighs. Stand with your feet apart at shoulder’s width. Bend down as much as you can, doing a perfect squat. While coming back up, instead of doing it normally, end it with a jump.
