A lunge is a lower body exercise that’s often part of a general leg routine to help enhance and elongate your butt, quadriceps and hamstrings. A lunge is a flexible exercise, as you can perform them with simply your own body weight, or utilize dumbbells, a barbell or resistance bands for even more of a difficulty. Variations of the lunge, such as the diagonal lunge, help work the muscles from somewhat various angles to make a more complete workout.
Stand with your feet dealing with forward and your hands on your hips, a pinhead in each hand or a barbell across your shoulders.
Look directly ahead and advance with your right leg at a 45 degree angle. Bend your right knee so your leg is at a 90 degree angle and your knee is no farther than your toes.
Step back so your right foot is even with your left once again. Action out with your left leg at a 45 degree angle and flex your left knee to 90 degrees. Return to the start and continue alternating till your set is finished.
Stand with your feet about shoulder width and alternate stepping back on a 45 degree angle into a lunge position for a different feel. Action the right leg back to 5 o’clock and the left back to 7 o’clock.
