They aren't difficult, you don't need any fancy equipment or machines to perform them, and they're one of the most effective exercises there is for your legs. To perform this exercise, simply stand up straight, place your hands on your hips, and then proceed to place your right foot around two or three feet in front of you, stepping with it as you do so. Lift the heel of your foot up so that your toes are all that are touching the ground, before bending both of your knees together at the same time, so that they both form a 90 degree angle. Your right knee must not be extended further than the toes on your right foot. Hold this pose for 3 – 5 seconds, before returning to a standing position, and repeating the exercise all over again, only this time stepping forward with your left leg, rather than your right leg. For best results, try to perform 3 sets of 20 lunges (10 lunges per leg).

Bodyweight squats — To really help tone your hamstrings and your quads (thighs), squats should also form part of your exercise routine. Again, you can do them anywhere, they aren't difficult, and they don't take long either. To perform bodyweight squats, simply stand up straight, making sure you're looking dead ahead. Cross your arms over your chest, touching your left shoulder with your right arm, and your right shoulder with your left arm. Stand with your feet around 2 inches wider than shoulder width apart, and then slowly squat down. Try to imagine you're trying to touch the backs of your heels with your butt. Squat down until your knees are bent at, at least a 90 degree angle, before slowly returning to the standing position, and performing another several reps. 3 sets of 10-12 reps should be sufficient enough.

Dumbbell farmer's walk on tip toes — This exercise is great for toning all of the major muscle groups in your legs, especially your calves. You will need a set of dumbbells to perform this exercise. To begin, grab a pair of relatively heavy dumbbells in each hand, and hold them down at your sides, so that your arms are extended at arm's length. Next, slowly raise your heels, and walk on your toes, either in a circle or a straight line if you can, for around 60 seconds. Make sure you wear a decent pair of training shoes for this exercise. Repeat this process a further 3 times, so that you complete 3 circuits.

Hopefully at the end of these exercises your legs are feeling a good burn. Do these every two days for a month and you will see some amazing results and you will be on your way to having legs like a supermodel.
