Want to challenge yourself? Here are a few ways to up the intensity on these lunges:
- Add weight - dumbbells and kettlebells work great!
- Add a pulse - come up and down a few more times once you are in your lunge to really challenge your muscles.
- Add a shoulder press - work your shoulders by adding bands or dumbbells while also increasing your core strength and balance. Be sure to do the "press up" as you bend down into your lunge.
