Lunge Combination for Effective Workout

Social Share Toolbar

The most effective workouts I believe are high intensity using exercises that work multiple joints at the same time, by involving as many muscles in the shortest time possible, you will burn more calories faster and and gain lean muscle as well. The bread and butter of many a fitness program and one of the best, is the lunge. It targets the quadriceps and the glutes most intensely, but also hits the hamstrings, calves and core, improves lower limb function, and even improves running speed. Another great feature is its back-friendly, because of the need to keep your back straight and your chest lifted, so you have little risk of back strain. You can have many variations and this one I have combined three in one – This lunge variation involves a bar which helps with stability, keeps your back straight and increases the resistance. Secondly stepping up onto the step increases the range of movement an adds more intensity to the exercise giving you better glute and quad workout and and the last part of this exercise is after you lunge onto the step, standing straight, raise your leg back up behind you working your hamstrings and glutes even further.
