Lunge to Lean Legs

Fitness in small spaces can be fun and effective at strengthening the body to withstand life events—such as picking up heavy objects or chair sitting and standing—while preparing the body for outdoor recreational activities—like swimming, running, hiking, and volleyball.

3-Way Lunge Circuit—to strengthen and elongate the leg muscles

Stand with feet shoulder width apart. Move forward with two walking lunges. Keep the body upright, as you lunge forward—with rear knee descending to about 4 inches above the ground. Make sure to keep the front knee from extending over the toes. Assume a shoulder width stance. Perform a left and right stationary, lateral lunge—turning the lunging foot outward. Assume the same starting position. Finish by performing a left and right reverse, stationary lunge—keeping the body in an upright position.

Repeat the process 2-3 more sets.

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