Backward Stationary Lunge

This lunge can be done in place with or without free weights and works mostly the hamstrings and gluteus maximus. Have your feet shoulder width apart, with your knees slightly bent. Step back one foot at a time. Keep your back straight. Step back with your right foot: Lower your right knee to the floor slowly. Your left leg bends until the left knee is 90 degrees. Bend your right leg 90 degrees, only this leg's knee almost touches the floor. Have the right knee go about one inch over the floor. Keep your back straight for the whole move. Exhale when you go down and inhale when you go back up to starting position. Do five sets of ten repetitions for each leg going backwards.
