Lunge + Rotations

See the step up for the beginner version of this and then...
the lunge. Once you are capable at the lunge add this rotational element. You are ready if you can complete 3 sets of 15 lunges per leg with really good balance not falling over and with excellent form and maintaining a strong core and controlled breathing. The rotation element is great because its brings another movement into the exercise which challenges your balance and core strength. We can really get creative to by adding weight to the lunge by holding onto a barbell on our shoulders and progressing to doing the lunge with rotations whilst holding weight and rotating. This makes it a great strength, balance, coordinated movement that brings results. Your heart will be pumping and your whole body toning!!! try and work up to 3 sets of 10 each leg of these before you add any weight! Its always better to have good form and build the complexity of an exercise gradually!!!
Have fun with the lunge
