Static Lunge on a step
Change up your lunge … work harder, get more range of motion, tone and tighten your tush and thighs … simply by placing your front foot on a step. This is also a great exercise to incorporate into an outside walk in the park as an interval, find a curb or bench and do 10 static lunges per foot, aim for 3 to 5 sets during a half hour walk. Remember, the higher the step or the curb the more challenging the exercise.
Do it Right
- Step your left foot forward onto a step keeping both feet hips distance apart, raise right heel so you are balanced on the ball of your right foot
- Bend both knees to lower body down as far as possible or until right knee is close to but not touching the floor
- Keep left knee directly over left ankle, back straight, chin up & abdominals tight – your right knee, hip & shoulder should be in a straight line
- Exhale & extend both knees up to return to starting position
