Walking lunges

Walking lunges are simple, but effective for targeting the quads and glutes. Since this exercise is similar to walking, doing it outdoors makes perfect sense.

How to perform walking lunges

Stand tall, tighten your core and put your feet together. You can either place your hands behind your head or on your hips. If you are a beginner, you may feel more comfortable placing them on your hips for balance. Step forward with your right leg and bend both of your knees. Keep your front knee aligned directly over your ankle and let your back knee bend until it is close to the ground. As you sink your back knee down, let your back heel lift naturally off the ground. Alternate legs as you progress forward.

Alternatively you could perform jumping lunges for more explosive strength. Check out the video’s below for examples.
