To Your Health: Walking Lunges


Nike fitness experts show us the proper way to do walking lunges and why we should do them.

The move: Walking lunges

Three reasons to do it now

• Get off on the right foot: Tight on time? Quickly warm up your whole lower body with lunges before pressing play on your workout.

• Stride right: The longer your stride, the more you’ll stretch the hip flexors — a group of muscles along the front of the hips that tend to be tight in athletes.

• There’s no excuse not to — that’s why: Walking lunges strengthen the glutes and quadriceps. “And since they don’t require any equipment, they’re a true do-anywhere move that you can use in a bodyweight circuit training series, whether you’re at the gym, at home, or at the beach,” said Craig Ballantyne, C.S.C.S., the author of Turbulence Training.
