🚨 Long caption alert 🚨
Quick note before I jump onto the topic:
I never thought that, after the spinal fusion surgery, I'd have a strong back like I do now. I literally thought that my life was over and I would never be able to resume normal life and get back to basic, everyday functions.
How silly was I? Lol. Well I was definitely scared, I know that much. Not only am I "normal" now, but I have great posture, strength (it wasn't easy btw), and a cool scar to go along with it 😇 ⏬⏬⏬⏬⏬⏬ Anyhow, LUNGES. Favorite finisher to my leg work outs!! To be specific, I really enjoy hitting walking lunges with dumbbells or barbell to really exhaust myself and my legs.
Now why are they so awesome, you ask?
Not only do lunges target your quads, but they also attack your glutes, hammies, calves and core muscles, which makes them high on the list for toning your lower body.
Unlike many leg exercises, they are back-friendly, because of the need to keep your back straight and chest lifted, resulting in decreased risk of back strain.
Other great benefits: ▶ Allows for better balance
▶ Increase hip flexor flexibility
▶ helps w/ symmetry
▶ Super functional in every day life
Add this exercise to your leg routine!
And as always, let me know. I love to know about you guys ❤
