Easy Workouts Done Right at Home-Lunges
Following up with the previous blog from last week here is another easy workout that can be done right at home. The first exercise is called lunges. Lunges are a simple workout that requires using your legs. This exercise is a leg workout mainly and it is important to do lunges properly, so you don’t put unwanted strain on your joints.
-Lunges- A lunge is a strength training exercise that is used to strengthen the quadriceps muscles, gluteus muscles and the muscle comprising the hamstring.
-Correct lunges are supposed to be done by keeping your upper body straight, with your shoulders back and relaxed. Your chin is supposed to be up at all time looking straight to where you are looking at. Step forward with one leg (either left or right, which ever you are comfortable with) lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Always make sure that your knee is directly above your ankle, not pushed out too far, and also make sure that the knee that you are bending does not touch the floor. Keep the weight off your heels as you push back up to the starting position.
-Doing lunges works out your lower back. For example; gluteus, calf, quadriceps, and hamstrings muscles are the main body parts that are being used with this exercise. Starting off with 10 lunges is a good start. As the days progress you can increase the number of lunges you would like to do.
Enjoy your workout and remember that you can always include this workout with any of the previous workouts that were posted before.
