A lunge is an exercise that words your hips, glutes, quads, hamstrings and core, including all those hard to reach muscles that are in your inner thighs.
Here are the instructions for the HITZone Lunge.
1 Start up straight, with your shoulders resting underneath the shoulder pads of the HITMachine.
2 Squeeze your core.
3 Take a step forward with your right leg moving your weight forward. The heel should hit the ground first.
4 Lower your body and the machine until your right thigh is parallel to the floor, if you can allow the left knee to tap the ground whilst keeping the weight on your right heel.
5 Press into the right heel and return to starting position.
6 Repeat the lunge on the left leg with the right knee tapping the ground.
Lunges challenge your balance, using the HITMachine to lunge makes it easier for our members to balance and achieve a good lunging technique without feeling unstable.
Your feet should remain hip width apart, you aren’t walking a tightrope.
Make sure that you are taking a big enough step, if you aren’t your heel will lift and you will be transferring your weight to the wrong place!
