Lunges and Jump Lunges

Want to build stronger legs, but lack a gym membership? No problem, lunges and jump lunges can be done anywhere with no equipment needed.

1. Stand with the feet hip-width apart and arms straight at the sides.
2. Step your right leg forward and lower the body slowly until left (back) knee is close to or touching the floor and bent at least 90 degrees.
3. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side..

For a different variation, lunges can also be performed in reverse by stepping back into the lunge. For a higher intensity lunge with an added cardiovascular boost, try the jump lunge.
Stand with the feet hip width apart and lunge forward with the right foot. Jump straight up, propelling the arms forward while keeping the elbows bent. While in the air, switch legs and land in a lunge with the opposite leg forward. Repeat and continue switching legs. Try to do 10 on each leg..
