Workout move of the week-Curtsy lunge and Side lunge

This weeks move are some of my favourite exercises I like to do for my legs as I find them fun different. Great to spice up your leg routine and a great way to work the legs and glutes.

To do a curtsy lunge:

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart
  • Dumbbells either side of your legs
  • Core tight
  • Take a big step back with your leg, crossing it behind your other leg
  • Bend your knees and lower your hips until your right thigh is nearly parallel to the floor
  • Keep your back straight  and your hips and shoulders as square as possible
  • Repeat on the other side

To do a side lunge:

  • Stand with your feet hip width apart
  • Dumbbell cupped in between your hand
  • Core tight
  • Take a step to the side with one foot and bend at the knee try to get your leg at 90 degrees
  • Keep your back straight and your hips and shoulders as square as possible
  • Keeping your other leg straight with a soft bend in the knee if needed
  • Push through the heel of your bent leg to return to standing
  • Repeat on the other side
