Lunge twist – PICTURE – Women's Health & Fitness

2. Lunge & Twist

This is a great exercise that gives the classic lunge some extra oomph and works your core.

1. Stand with both feet shoulder-width apart in start position and place your weight in the middle.  

2. Step forward with your right leg and lower your body to the ground, keeping your back straight and your shoulders back.

3. Twist to the opposite side and then immediately step up – pause then and take the next leg into a lunge.

4. Repeat on the other side as you walk forward in a travelling lunge. I do 5 lunges out and 5 lunges back.
