Progressive Lunge Sequence. Start at the beginning and work your way up thru the sequence. For consistency I would aim to do 8 reps on each leg per exercise. You could do one lunge sequence all the way thru or you could start with just forward lunges and add in a new lunge each day or whenever you feel confortable. There are no rules! Example Workouts: • Beginners: Lunge 1 – 3 sets x 8 reps. Add in a new lunge when you feel ready and build up thru the sequence. Medium: 1 set x 8 reps of each lunge. Add in extra sets as and when you feel ready. Advanced: 3 sets of Full Lunge Sequence. 90secs rest in between sets. Increase sets when you feel ready. #workout #lockdown #homeworkout #gym #fitness #health #lifestyle
