SQUAT TO LUNGE JUMPS
WHY Adding a jump to your standard squat and lunge not only increases intensity and energy expenditure, it also works your butt and legs much harder to maximise metabolic burn.
HOW Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your chest held high, then sit your butt back into a bodyweight squat, keeping your knees behind your toes. Drive up into a jump and land in a rightleg lunge, keeping your knees bent to absorb the impact. That’s one rep. (Take this exercise slowly initially to ensure you have the proper lunge technique: your body should be upright, shoulders back, hands on your hips, right knee and ankle in line, left knee just off the floor.) Drive up into a jump and land in a squat, then complete the move into a left-leg lunge.
