Lunges are one of the best ways to target the hamstrings, glutes and quads. And as an added bonus, you can do them just about anywhere as part of a great leg workout! Here are three variations of the lunge, including two plyometric versions to get your heart rate bumping and kick fat-burning mode into overdrive!

Love the birds chirping in the back ground while your exercising. I only get 2 months of summer where I live so I love exercising outside to take advantage of great weather whenever possible. Thanks for the video 🙂Log in to reply
I do reverse lunges and step both legs togeather up the top to swap sides for each lunge, doing 3 sets of 12 to 15. It used to send my heartrate through the roof and was easy to overdo but its getting easier now, although I still can only just finish. How do you know if your forward knee is going over your front foot and how do you know if your back knee is going low enough? Any signs to look out for without a mirror?Log in to reply
Just look down and make sure your knee is aligned with your front toe, if you knee is well over the front toe then you are going too far. Also keep your upper body upright, leaning forward too much can lead to your knee going to far forward as well.Log in to reply
Thanks!! Sometimes I feel as though if I step back too far my back knee isn’t going down and my back leg is more straight and stretched out, could this explain why the movement feels awkward?Log in to reply
