A lower body workout guaranteed to bring you to fatigue and shape your legs. Like I say in my Barry’s classes…this is meant to be a burnout. It’s a burnout. So make it burn.
Let’s be clear about two things:
- A static forward lunge is just that, the feet remain static, or in the same position throughout the range of motion of each rep. In a split-stance with your one foot forward and one foot back. Engage your abs, straighten your back and look straight ahead. Maintain this position as you bend your legs to lower your hips toward the floor. Continue down until your left knee nears the floor then press through your right heel to return to the starting position.
- An isometric hold is just that, a hold. At the bottom of your static lunge you’ll hold the position for the prescribed duration. Engage your abs, straighten your back and look straight ahead. Maintain this position with both legs taking a 90 degree bend.
