Lunges work most of the muscles in your legs including your quads, hamstrings, glutes and calves. So if you’re looking for a way to get stronger legs, they rock! Try these easy-to-follow tips on getting lunges into your life. You’ll be stronger and faster in just a few weeks!
How To Do A Lunge
Start with your right leg in front, and in a split-stance (one leg forward, one leg back). Bend your front knee and lower your back knee almost to the ground, into what’s called a “lunge” position. Your front knee stays in a 90 degree angle. Keeping the weight in your heels, push back up (slowly!) to a starting position. Inhale as you lower and exhale as you push back up. Now do this 10-12 times. You can put your hands out to your sides or on your hips, whatever feels most comfortable.
Now do the same with your left leg in front. Remember, never lock your knees at the top and don’t let your knee touch the ground. Do this exercise 2-3 times per week.
