The Walking Lunge exercise is a great strength training exercise. It works the quads, hamstrings, calves, glutes, and core. Walking Lunges are a core part of a lower body routine.
Dumbbells or barbells can be added to increase difficulty. If you go fast, they can also be used for aerobic activity. The walking lunge is similar to a normal lunge, but you move yourself forward as you do each one.
How to do Walking Lunge:
- Stand with your legs shoulder width apart, this is your starting position.
- Step forward with right leg and lower your body to 90 degrees in both knees.
- Don’t step out too far, and drop into a deep lunge.
- There should be 2 to 2.5 feet between your feet at this point.
- Keep your forward heel in contact with the ground as you drive back up
- Make sure to keep your weight on your heels to maintain balance.
- From here, push up, bringing the rear leg forward until you are standing straight again.
- Slowly step forward with the back foot to the next lunge position.
- Step forward with opposite leg and repeat, walking forward for all reps.
