Side Lunges with bicep curl using a medicine ball or weight
Sitting at computers, desks and driving are more common now than ever, a lot of gym based exercises also mirror these movement patterns. The human body needs to be strong and flexible in all movement patterns, for this reason side lunges are necessary to incorporate into a training schedule.
Stand with your feet together, draw the abdominals in, roll the shoulders back and down, ensuring a good neutral start position.
Take a step to the side, whilst curling the arm holding the ball/weight, bend into the moving leg keeping the standing leg straight.
Power back from your buttocks and thigh to the start position still maintaining good posture.
Repeat 12x each side, rest for 30 seconds then repeat twice.
Improving posture and function, working to encourage flexibility in the hip and inner thigh, tones and conditions the thighs and gluteal muscles in the backside as well as the biceps.
