A couple of times a week we do a ‘Total Body Workout’ exercise class. It usually hurts whilst we’re doing it, but the next day, after our attempts at the perfect lunge, we usually have what we affectionately term ‘lunge butt’.
I’ve just read an article by Erica Suter on how to perfect the perfect lunge. Not only does she explain how to perfect a lunge, but also explores several variations of lunge to really put your body to work.
Whilst Erica talks about the benefits for runners and climbers, for us skiers, her words ring true. A good lunge can “improve your lower-body strength, stability, and endurance performance”; what skier wouldn’t want that?
