Anatomy of a lunge

Share This Post

I had someone tell me the other day that all personal trainers seem to have this obsessive love affair with the lunge. “BORING:”, she cried. Well let me tell you that there is a reason why us personal trainer types prescribe the lunge with monotonous regularity. It is one of the most useful exercise in terms of building glute (bum), quads (thighs) and gastroc (calves) strength and it is strength that you can transfer directly in to activities you do on a daily basis – e.g. getting in to and out of a car, picking anything up off the ground or catching yourself if you trip over a gutter. Besides all this, it will make your legs look good! So show me a better exercise and I will prescribe it. See below for a great demonstration on how it is done well.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
