EMS Fitness Exercise #2 – Body Weight Lunges

October 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

This post is the second in a series on EMS Fitness.  This is designed as information and suggested activities that can improve your fitness and strength.  As always, please remember that you should always check with your doctor for any limits you have.

This exercise is also built to strengthen the legs but also adds in some core strength to your work out. It also recruits/engages some
different muscle groups that will help with your leg strength and endurance.  The beauty is it takes zero equipment, and you can do it anywhere!

Body Weight Lunges:

Make sure your feet are shoulder width apart and then take a long step forward with your right foot, bending at the knee with both legs. The
goal is to keep the weight of the lunge on the front heel, while keeping you back straight. Keeping your back straight engages your core stabilizer muscles, and makes sure you keep good form. Hold the position for 1-3 seconds, and then return to the starting position. Then repeat with the left leg. Do 3 sets of 8-10 reps. If this is to easy you can add some weight by adding books to a book bag, or using the EMS jump bag as added weight.

Make sure you warm up first, and cool down/stretch afterward!
