Madison James Healthy Lifestyle On The Go – March 2015

James, Madison 2_cred Ben Robi PhotographyIt’s almost time to break out those spring clothes! I have a simple exercise that will get you toned and ready for shorts in no time: the walking lunge. It’s my favorite move to target the thighs, butt and core. Let’s start lunging!

1. Stand tall with your feet together, shoulders back and hands by your side or on your hips – whatever makes you feel comfortable.

2. Take one step forwards with the right leg, making sure to keep that core tight, and sink down until both knees are at a 90-degree angle.

3. Push off the back leg and bring the feet together. Do the same move with the other leg, moving forward with each lunge.

To prevent knee strain or injury, make sure your front knee does not go past your big toe during any lunge. Start slow with 10 to 15 reps, rest and repeat three times. As you get better, challenge yourself by adding hand weights and increasing your reps. You’ll be ready in no time to show off those sexy legs and tight tush.
