Move Targets: Glutes and Quads
Step 1: Begin with your feet under your hips and chest lifted. You can place your hands on your hips or anywhere to help you balance. Step one leg out in front of you and drop into your lunge. Make sure the front knee is behind the front toes and you've created a 90-degree bend in both the front and back legs. The chest stays lifted – do not lean forward.
Step 2: Exhale and push yourself out of the lunge to the starting position, then immediately take that same leg and step it out to the side. Drop the hips backward and down, keeping the knee behind the toe. The other leg will be completely straight with the foot totally on the floor. Again, do not lean – sit back into the lunge.
Step 3: Exhale and push yourself out of the lunge to the starting position, then immediately send the same leg behind you into a reverse lunge. Create a 90-degree bend with both legs again. Your chest is lifted and stacked right over your hips. Exhale and push yourself out of the lunge to the starting position to finish one repetition.
