    Julie’s move of the month

    Each month I will be bringing you a simple move that you can do anywhere. These will give you strength, burn calories, develop lean muscle, increase energy and help correct your posture.

    Static Lunge

    Static Lunge: The static lunge is one of the most important exercises.  Your legs are the largest muscle group and carry your body around every day. Weak, imbalanced leg muscles will cause bad posture, backache, sore knees, fatigue and risk of injury. The lunge works your glutes, quads and hamstrings and here is how it is performed correctly..

    Step 1

    Stand with your feet hip width apart, hips and shoulders facing forward. It is important that there is no rotation in your hips. Make sure your toes and heels are aligned and face forward in a straight line.

    Step 2

    Step out with one leg and, bending at the knee, let your body move towards the floor as one unit, so no tilting forward or backward in moving. Your front leg is doing the work; the knee should be bent 90 degrees, your thigh parallel to the floor, your knee aligned with your ankle. Do not allow the front knee to go over your toes. Your back leg should be stretched out and as you go down to the floor your heal will rise up so you are on your toes. Make sure your back leg does not come past your hip level causing your upper body to tip. Go down to a count of 3 and return to a standing position to the count of 3.

    Step 3

    When you rise up, do not lock your knees at all during this exercise. Go up and down for 12 repetitions each side, squeeze through your front heel into your glutes on the upward movement. When you have mastered this using your body weight, load yourself with dumb bells to increase the challenge.
