Getting to this post very late today. I did this earlier today but didn't get to the post . The warm up helped but I gotta say my knees don't like lunges much! But like I said the warm up really did help.
Been home sick the past couple of days and been sleeping a lot during the day, which means when I wake up, like now I am up in the wee hours, not so good. Hoping to fall back to sleep soon.
Hoping to get back on a more regular schedule tomorrow. Day 2 complete Janet!
Hope everyone had a great day today! Remember to keep smiling, it is contagious:)
Here is the how and why for those in other tracks:
How to do it
Warm up by walking or marching in place for three to five minutes. Find an open space where you can walk freely. Hold your arms with your elbows bent by your sides, as though you are jogging, and take a giant step forward with your right foot, placing it flat on the floor and allowing the heel of your left foot to come up off the floor. Bend your knees into a lunge, lowering your hips straight down toward the floor as you do. Straighten your legs, then take a giant step forward with your left foot and repeat the lunge on your other side. Repeat six more times, alternating legs so you complete four lunges on each side. Cool down by walking or marching in place for two to three minutes.
Why it matters
A lunge walk is a great way to work both your heart with a little walk and your legs with a lunge. And the lunges don't have to be big to get good results. So if you have knee problems, concentrate more on taking a big step forward and pulling your back leg from behind than on bending deeply. You'll open up your hips, improve your walking gait, and get a little balance training all at the same time.
