Sometimes, it just feels good to kick something! Releasing your aggression with a front kick isn’t just good for your stress management, it’s also it’s fantastic for your butt: This strengthens the core, hip flexors, fronts of the thighs, and largest part of your butt.

Stand perfectly upright, feet shoulder-width apart, arms bent with fists clenched loosely in front of you. Lift right knee to hip height, and then extend foot out as if trying to kick something out of the way. Drop foot and return leg to start. Repeat for 12 reps then switch legs.

Make it easier: Only lift your knee to half the height and kick lower.
