3. Lunges- There are several variations of the lunge. There is the walking lunges, side lunges, stationary lunges, reverse or front lunges.
4. Squats- You can do squats with your feet together and feet apart at shoulder-width. Another ways is to place your back on wall while pushing yourself up doing the squats. An advance squat would include holding extra weight (dumbbells, water jugs, etc) across your shoulders.
