The Lunge – An exercise to tone your legs and core

The Lunge – An exercise to tone your legs and core


So when we set up for the lunge our feet
are going to be about shoulder-width apart.
We’re gonna take that rib cage, pull it down nice and tight; imagine I’m gonna
pop you right in the belly. Now our first step for this particular movement is to
take that first foot, step out, drop your back knee to the floor. From here, lift
the back knee, bring your feet back together. We can alternate legs, touching
that back knee to the floor each time. What we’re looking for in this
movement – starting in the standing position:
take your step out, drop your back knee to the floor. Our front knee should not
go any further than the tip of our toes. When we stand: feet back together and
alternate. Now if you’d like to make this a little bit easier, if you have limited
range of motion or mobility, we can go half or even less if you don’t feel
comfortable. But if you’d like to make this a little bit more difficult you can
grab something heavy, maybe a heavy water bottle or a rock or if you happen to
have one on hand, a kettlebell, but again nothing changes. Feet shoulder-width
apart, ribcage down, big step out and feet back
together.
