3 Benefits Of Walking Lunges For Women
Walking lunges are a simple and great exercise you can do with numerous benefits. It’s not complicated like teaching a heavy squat or deadlift and you can use your body weight or any type of weight. Grab some dumbells, kettlebells, sandbags, or anything you can use.
You can even mix it up with different weights in each hand or even use weight in one hand only which will make the core work as well.
If you are not doing walking lunges put them in your training.
Here Are 3 Benefits Of Walking Lunges:
1. They improve balance and stability. When you walk and you stand on one leg you are forced to balance your body. This will improve stability and this has many benefits for overall strength and stability.
2. They work the legs, hamstrings, glutes & more. As much as I love squats and deadlifts walking lunges and lunge variations are going to hit your legs, hamstrings, glutes, calves and more in ways that no squat or deadlift can do. I promise you will feel these the next day.
3. They improve weak areas or muscle imbalances. By using one leg at a time you are forced to work certain muscles differently than double leg exercises like squats and deadlifts.
Give them a try and let me know how you find them.
