If you're wearing a trumpet silhouette, you'll want to do exercises that slim your butt, thighs and legs. Squats are one of the best exercises you can do to tone and tighten your entire lower body without any equipment, making this toning exercise a real time-saver compared to other moves that work one part of your lower body at a time. Squats not only work your glutes, but they also do wonders for your hamstrings, quadriceps, and calf muscles. Plus, they're super-easy to do!

To perform the perfect squat, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent. Slowly lower your body into a sitting position (your thighs should be parallel with the ground) and then push your body back into a standing position. Make sure not to lock your knees and focus on keeping your back straight. If you want to make this move a little more difficult, hold weights in each hand. Aim for three sets of 15.
