SquatsYou cannot go wrong with squats. One of the staple exercises of every possible workout program, simple bodyweight air squats can do plenty for the activation and toning of your leg and glute muscles.
LungesAnother staple exercise that can be performed in a variety of ways are lunges. You can do front, reversed, curtsy, side, or a combination of all and really tackle all of your leg muscles to the point of burnout.
