12 Days of Fitness - Twelve Alternating Lunges

by Scott G. on December 23, 2013

It’s the twelfth day of fitness – and we’re challenging you to add TWELVE alternating lunges to your leg routine! You do have a leg routine, don’t you? Lunges are a great exercise to target your quads, hamstrings and glutes – all the leg muscles in one movement! #healthyholidays

To perform a lunge:
1. Start in a standing position holding a dumbbell or kettlebell in each hand.
2. Step forward with your right foot and lower your left knee towards the floor. If your knee goes forward past your foot, take a larger step.
3. Return to the starting position and repeat for 12 reps, alternating between your right and left legs.
