Target Area: Lower Body
Equipment: Not required
- Start with your feet hip width apart and hands on your hips for stability.
- Keeping your upper body straight, take a step backward crossing your leg behind your front leg as if about to do a curtsy. Lower your hips until the front knee is bent at about a 90 degree angle and the back knee reaches just above the ground or softly touches the ground.
- Keeping the weight in your heel, push back up to the starting position before alternating to the other leg. Perform for the number of prescribed repetitions.
Add weight to the movement. This can be in the form of dumbbells held either at your sides or one dumbbell placed on your chest horizontally.
Master a Stationary Lunge first.
