Lunges are one of the most basic and effective exercises you can do to target your booty and legs. Adding weights to the move makes it way more intense. Try this variation that will not only challenge your sense of balance but will also definitely leave you sore tomorrow.
- Stand with your feet together, holding a dumbbell in each hand, either by your sides or with bent elbows as shown in the photo.
- Put weight into your left foot and step your right foot back into a lunge position, so both knees are at 90-degree angles, with the back knee just barely touching the floor.
- Step your right foot forward.
- This counts as one rep.
You can do this exercise holding dumbbells or kettlebells, or place a barbell in the front or back rack position for more of a challenge. Be sure to do the same number of reps on each side.
