It’s time to start showing a little love to your legs! We have the perfect way to do just that: Lunges.
This move helps train your glutes, hamstrings, quads, and core. And the best part is that lunges hit them all at once to burn major calories! What could be better?
There are different variations of lunges: forward, reverse, side, walking and isometric. You have enough options to vary your leg workout—sounds like a win to us!
The ever-popular forward lunge is simple to execute. This type of lunge hits your glutes and hamstrings, and hones in on your quads for even more thigh strength.
Here’s what you do: Standing tall with your feet hip-width apart, place your hands on your hips or grab some weights, and take a slow, controlled step forward with your right leg. Keep your spine tall and weight in your heels, lower your body until both your front and back legs form 90-degree angles, and your knees are directly over your ankles. Pause for a second, then bring your right leg backward to return to start.
Quick tip: Be careful not to wobble!
