YEAY!! We survived day ONE 🙂 How are your legs feeling today? You will start to feel this working soon – so be ready for it.
SINGLE LEG reverse lunges … 6 reps on each leg … repeated 1-3 times
But before I send you off to do your lunges … A quick recap on form …
~ Feet stance is about hip width apart for balance
~ Length is a BIG step apart – big enough to allow all the 90 degree angles and the front knee doesn’t go past the toes!
~ Upper body is right in the middle between your legs, with your chest lifted
~ As we step back, we focus on bending the back knee – front will follow, but focus is on the back
~ As we raise up, we press up through the front heel
So today – We are going to be adding a step together between each lunge. Yesterday we were static, meaning once our feet were planted, they didn’t come up until after all 6 lunges were done. Today, each time we rise up, we tap our feet together up top.
Still continue to focus on just 1 leg. So you’ll do all 6 reps on the right leg first, tapping in between each rep. Then do all 6 reps on the left. Again – option for 1-3 sets, depending on your fitness level.
TIP – now that we are lifting the back leg up between each step, balance is going to be extra challenged today! Keep your core braced to help – and think TALL! Imagine there’s a string pulling your head to the ceiling. Even as you lower down into your lunge, still keep thinking tall. That should help with balance.
CRUSH IT!! Go get lunging – and comment below when you’re done 🙂
