How to do... lunges
Lunges are designed to help increase the strength in your upper leg and tone your bottom.
Some people like to do them using no weights at all.
Others prefer to rest a barbell behind their neck or even hold dumbbells in their hand to increase the intensity.
Don't use weights if you're under 16.
Stand with your legs together and then lunge forward with your left leg so your leg is right out in front of you.
As you are lunging, bend your knee and flex your hip so your rear leg is almost in contact with the floor.
Make sure you land on the heel of your front foot first and then bring the front of your foot down.
Finally, return to your starting position by extending the hip and knee of the left leg.
Now try it with your right leg lunging and repeat ten or fifteen times.
