Exercise 2 - Lunges
Tips to make your Home Workouts more challenging!
Its been 3 weeks now since the lockdown and those bodyweight exercises may be becoming too easy or tedious. So we will be sending you daily exercises you can do with items around the house. Everyone has some paint pots, heavy objects or even some empty milk gallons they can fill to provide a more challenging workout!
We call this the Paint Pot Chronicles!
Step 1 Starting Position: Grab your paint pot, lift up to chest height and take around two steps back with your left leg. Step 2 Slowly go down until your knee touches the floor, concentrating on dropping your hips towards the floor, hold for 1-2 secs at the bottom and slowly push through the heel of your right foot. Step 3 Hold for 1-2 secs at the bottom and slowly push through the heel of your right foot, all whilst maintaining an upright back. Step 4 Complete for as many reps as possible for 3-5 sets on each leg. You should be feeling this in your glutes, quadriceps and hamstrings. If this is too easy, try elevating your back leg on a chair to complete a Bulgarian Split Squat instead!
