ROCK YOUR BODY!

Lunges are one of the most effective lower-body exercises we can do. Lunges help shape, tone, and firm up these dare to bare areas while improving our core strength. They also have a laundry list of other great side effects like helping to stretch your hip flexors which help alleviate low back pain as well as improving your balance and evening out strength and muscular imbalances by bringing your weak side up to par with your strong side.

For a basic lunge or forward lunge you would start by aligning your shoulders with your hips (throughout the exercise) and keep your head up facing forward,  you would then maintain your forward knee over your ankle and your lower back knee toward the floor. Avoid extending the forward knee past your ankle and If you feel wobbly use a chair or the wall to steady yourself.
