Save time at the gym and power up your cardio to do double duty with this elliptical workout. Upping the incline on the machine targets the glutes and hamstrings while raising your heart rate. That's right! You can torch some serious calories while toning your backside. Remember, pressing through your heels when you're on the elliptical will make the glute muscles work even more.
