Static lunges - Women's Health & Fitness

5. Static lunges

With feet shoulder-width apart, imagine you are standing on train tracks and stride forward with your left foot along the left train track. Keep your weight in the heel of your front leg and, at the bottom of your lunge, wiggle your toes. Push through your heel and activate your glute to stand. Aim to keep a 45-degree angle at your knees.

If you had any pelvic instability, pubic pain or sciatica during pregnancy, avoid a lunge for now and substitute the hip raise you did at the beginning.

Perform 10 to 15.
