The lunge and twist is a great exercise for your legs and core. Nikki Fogden-Moore shows us how.

How to

Place a weight in each hand and hold by your side.

Take a long step forward; lower back knee until it almost touches the floor.

Twist your torso to the opposite side, holding the weight, then come back to centre. 

Added tip

Lift up weight in the centre for overhead press before changing sides.

Then, keeping body upright, push off from back foot and step forward into a lunge with other leg.

Both sides equals one rep. Ensure knees don’t pass toes, keep body upright and core engaged.
