Lunges are one more exercise you can use to tone up your glutes, calves, quadriceps, and hamstrings. They also improve your balance and coordination.
The starting position: Stand up straight with your feet hip-width apart. Your back should stay straight through the whole exercise, while arms can be placed wherever is convenient.
- Step forward with your left leg and drop your weight down so you literally place it on your right foot. Keep your right toes on the floor.
- Lower down until your left thigh is parallel to the floor and your left knee makes a 90-degree angle. Your right knee should almost touch the ground.
- Use your left leg to shove off and return to the starting position. Repeat with the other leg.
