1. Side lunge
Reps: 10 each leg
Benefits: Side lunges will target your legs from different angles, working your gluteals, inner thighs, hamstrings and calves.
How to do it
● Stand tall with your legs hip-width apart, your core in tight and shoulders back.
● Lift your right foot and take a step to your right as you push your hips backwards.
● Lower your body by dropping your hips and bending your left knee. Make sure your knee doesn’t go past your toe and then quickly push yourself back to the starting position.
Lean slightly forward during this move to really hit your quadriceps and gluteals.
As you lower down, breathe in. Exhale as you push up.
Keep your abs pulled in and don’t arch your back. Keep your spine neutral and chest lifted.
Don’t lunge too far to the side. Your knee should line up over your foot.
Your standing foot should remain on the floor at all times and your foot should point straight ahead.
