Who needs to trek to the gym when you can get your workout done inside with no equipment required? The single-leg glute bridge works your back, glutes, and thighs, and legs. To make this exercise a bit more difficult, follow the directions below but pick the toes of the standing foot off the floor. Here's how to get it done:

1. Lie on the floor with both knees bent, feet resting on the floor.

2. Brace your abs, raise one leg up toward the chest. Drive, putting your weight into the heel of the foot on the floor, until your hips are in a bridge position and body is in a straight line. Slowly lower back down.

3. Repeat 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps.
