Move Targets: Glutes and Quads


 Step-by-Step

Gliding-Side-Lunge_ALL

Step 1: Stand tall with the feet under the hips and place one sliding disc (paper plate on carpet or wash cloth on hardwood) under one foot. Make sure the majority of your foot is on the slider.

Step 2: Shift your weight into the grounded leg as the hips hinge backward and down, coming into a side lunge. Don't let the knee pass over the toes! You're going to stay low like this for the entire set.

Step 3: Let the sliding leg extend as far as possible and as straight as possible.

Step 4: Squeeze the glutes and push through the heel of your grounded leg to bring the slider back to neutral without standing straight up!
