Lunges done backward are harder than lunges! Grab a free weight, one for each had, of a weight that gives you a workout and that you can do for this exercise. Step backwards, one leg at a time, so that the forward leg is at a 90-degree angle at the knee. Do not let the backward leg's knee touch the floor. Get up slowing ad then put the other leg backward. Do four sets of ten repetitions. When you feel you can do it, do five sets of ten repetitions.
Always warm up before this exercise and cool down after this exercise. Warming up is stretching (see the next blog) and five minutes of treadmill at speed of a least 3.9 and no incline. Cool down can be the same stretches and waling around for on e minute at least.
