It’s nearly impossible to get bored with these 5 lunge variations!
1. Reverse Lunge
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold your hands together in front of your chest or rest them on your hips. Take a big step back with left foot, landing on the ball of your foot. Lower your body and bend right knee until it forms a 90-degree angle.
Reverse the movement to return to standing. Repeat on the other side.
2. Walking Lunge with Twist
Grab a medicine ball and hold it in front of your stomach. Step forward with right leg and lower into a lunge, then twist torso to the left.
Rotate back to center and raise your body back up, moving left leg forward into a lunge. Twist torso to the right. Continue alternating.
3. Curtsy Lunge
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your hands on your hips or hold them together in front of your chest. Take a big step back with right leg, crossing it behind left leg.
Bend both knees and lower your body toward the floor until front knee forms a 90-degree angle. Return to starting position and repeat on the other side.
4. Lunge with Bicep Curl
Holding a dumbbell in each hand, lunge forward with right leg. Once your knee is at about a 90-degree angle, curl the weights, then lower them back down.
Return to standing and repeat on the other side.
5. Lateral Lunge
Stand with feet hip-width apart. Engage your core and take a big step out to the right. Bend right knee and take care that it doesn’t extend past right toes. Sit hips back, keeping left leg straight and both feet flat on the floor. Push yourself back up to standing.
Repeat on the other side.
