Work your lower body in a whole new way! Mark Vohsman with Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping shows us how:

Squats -
The squat will work the entire leg, including the glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings and calves. When performing the squat, position your feet a little over shoulder width apart. Release the hips first at the beginning of the squat, immediately followed by a release of the knees. Your weight should be in your heels, not the ball of your feet or toes. Lower yourself to where the hip joint is at the same level as the knee joint. If at first you do not get very low, that's okay. Work at it. You will get there. Hips and glutes are always areas prime for reshaping.

Straight Leg Hip Raise -
This is perfect for toning and raising the rear end. Position yourself on your hands and knees. Push one foot back, straightening the leg. Now squeeze the glute to raise the heel a little above hip level. To work the hip and glute to shape the side go to fire hydrants. Once again on your hands and knees push your knee out and up. The goal is to get the knee up to hip level.
