    Lunges

    Inner-thigh muscles work more during lunges than in most exercises. The exercise engages muscles of glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps, calves and core.

    How to do lunges: Stand with your feet a foot wide and with arms on your side. Take a step forward (about 2 feet) and lower the leg into a lunge till it is parallel to the floor. Do 2-3 sets of 10 to 15 reps on each leg.
