THD Wednesday Challenge: Lunge Your Way Through Hump DayPosted: September 18, 2013 Filed under: Challenges, Fitness & Exercise | Tags: exercise methods, fitness, Wednesday Challenge 5 Comments
Another Wednesday, another challenge. This week we want you to do some lunges. 1 set of 5 reps each hour (10am-5pm) to be specific. But no cheating! We’re talking about 5 per leg each hour.
Lunges are a fantastic lower body exercise. They work your glutes (What you need to work for that nice tush!), quads, and hamstrings. If these muscles are strong, you will have less knee and ankle issues, as these muscles do a lot to stabilize your legs and hips. This is especially important for you walkers and runners out there!
Don’t know how to do a lunge? Check out this demonstration from SparkPeople!
Please check in with us through our Twitter hashtag #THDWednesdayChallenge. We love to hear how you are doing. Zee (@zeethd) and Suze (@suzethd) will be there! And you can join us on Facebook too!
We look forward to seeing you!
So true! Lunges are so effective. I will be doing 3x squats and 3x lunges. Whoooo!
That’s great! Let us know how it goes….and if you can move at the end of the day after that.
Went awesome. I was super ambitios and did leg press and leg extensions as well. I am fearing all stairs today.
Haha! I bet!
[…] It’s important to take breaks throughout the day to get the blood flowing. And walking stairs will work your quads and glutes, important leg muscles as we’ve learned. […]
