Rear Lunge

This is a great lunge variation and places emphasis on your gluteus muscles! Place one or two platforms, at least four inches above the ground. Stand with legs shoulder width apart.


Extend one leg back on forefoot until both knees are bent at 90 degrees. Extend the hip and knee of the forward leg to return to the original standing position. Repeat by alternating the rear lunge with the opposite leg.

Do five sets of ten repetitions. Then you may need bed rest!
