Box Lunge Tones the Butt and Thighs

The Lunge is one of the most effective exercises to work the lower extremity – specifically the inner and outer thighs, buttocks, and hamstrings. It can be performed with or without resistance. The Box Lunge provides dynamic movement in multiple plans of motions – sagittal (front to back), frontal (side to side), and transverse (rotation).

Box Lunge:

Perform a standard Forward Lunge – with the front knee bending to 90-degrees (knee behind toes). As you step forward – with the arms outstretched to the sides – rotate the body to the inside. Complete the lunge by stepping forward with the back leg.

Next, perform a Side Lunge followed by a Reverse Lunge, where you simultaneously extending both arms forward. Return to the standing position. Repeat the process with the other leg. Perform two boxes per leg.

Remember, you should always consult your physician before beginning any exercise, diet, or nutritional supplementation program.
