This exercise focuses on working the quads, glutes, hips, and hamstrings. It is great for a dynamic stretch before or after any physical activity, as well as a simple exercise to strengthen the quads.
- Start by standing up straight, hands at your side.
- Start the motion like a regular lunge, taking a large step forward (step softly!) with your right leg and bending both knees.
- Now, bring your left leg up in front of you to 90 degrees and hold for 1 second. Repeat by dropping your left leg back into the lunge position.
- Repeat the same motion 3-5 times, and switch legs.
