Neglecting exercises like the side lunge leads to muscle imbalances and injury. This work out fixes all that.

 

What It is: A circuit composed of side lunges, pull-ups, hand walkouts, and sprints. After a five to ten minute warm-up, set a timer for 10 minutes. Start the circuit at a brisk but sustainable pace and don’t stop until the 10 minutes are up.

 

Why It Works: Alternating hemispheres of the body jacks up your heart rate, but the real key is the use of uncommon moves like side lunges and hand walkouts. Side lunges stimulate fibers in the adductors and abductors that don’t get much attention during most leg lifts. Hand walkouts uniquely stimulate the core, shoulders, and arms.

 

 

The Workout:

Directions – Set a timer for 10 minutes and do the following exercises as a circuit without resting.

  • Side Lunge – 10 each side
  • Pull Up – 5 to 10 reps
  • Hand Walkout – 5 reps
  • Sprint/Stair Run – 30 seconds10-side-lunge-280
