Lunges!

by Adam benShea on July 20, 2010

Lunges! The bodyweight lunge, in all of its manifestations, builds leg strength for function (grapplers: notice how the movement replicates a takedown) and that small bikini that all girls, and some guys, have hidden away in their closet. Here is a workout of moderate difficulty composed of different variations of the lunge. These variations offer different strength benefits. For example, the lunge with a kick targets the glutes (aka the booty) and is, therefore, great for the skimpy bikini wearer. Whereas, the jumping lunge builds the explosive strength that is crucial for athletic endeavors from trail running to Judo. If you have questions about a workout, refer to the workouts demo page.
