If you are like me you have been doing lunges for a long time and getting pretty bored with them. Luckily there are so many different ways to lunge to keep up motivation and to keep challenging your lower body. The 3 way gliding lunge is one of my favorites. If you do not have glides at home, paper plates work just as well. All you need is a smooth floor surface and you are ready to go. Enjoy!
Side Lunge: Start in a standing position with your left toe in center of glide. Slowly lower your hips down and back toward the floor bending your right knee as you slide your left leg out to the side. Keeping your right need behind your toes, squeeze your right glute and slide the leg back in to start. Perform 16 reps.
Move to rear lunge when finished
Rear Lunge: Sitting in the heal of your right leg, slide the left leg back bending both knees and lowering into a 90 degree lunge. Make sure right knee does not move forward over the toes. Squeeze your right glute and pull the left leg back in to start. Perform 16 reps.
Move into Curtsy Lunge.
Curtsy Lunge: Slight left leg back and behind Right leg bending both knees to 90 degrees. Keep your hips square to the front of the room and make sure your right knee does not move forward over your toes. Keep all your weight in your right heel and squeeze your right glute as you pull your left leg back to starting position. Perform 16 reps.
Repeat all on left leg in the same sequence.
