1-Minute Wall Sit: Wall sits are a total-body workout, which means it works several of your major muscle groups. We love wall sits, not only because you'll feel the burn almost immediately in your legs, but because they really push us! Try to last the full one minute...or even longer! Check out this move here!

How was it? Are your legs shaking like leaves? That's actually a good thing! That means you worked muscles harder than they're used to. If you continue to work the muscles in your lower body, then pair it with healthy eating and dedication, you'll actually start to see some changes. Toning and muscle definition don't happen overnight, so stay patient and commit yourself to your leg workouts.

Oh, and the answer to our trivia question?

A: Heidi Klum! This ex-Victoria's Secret model paid the big bucks to make sure her legs were protected long-term. We're sure she's doing similar workouts to this every day to keep those bad boys looking toned and sexy.
