Walking Lunges

How to do Walking Lunges

1. Stand tall and strong with your feet placed about shoulder-width apart

2. With your chosen leg (the one that makes all the decisions) take a reasonably large step forward

3. Allow this leg to take the majority of the weight as you lower your body towards the ground. Try to keep your chest and back upright, with your eyes looking straight ahead

4. When your chosen leg bends at a 90-degree angle, briefly pause before driving through your leading heel and pushing yourself forward to then take a forward lunge with your rear leg

5. Continue this for the specified amount of reps or try to beat the mile world record time for walking lunges (it’s 25 minutes and 21 seconds).
