You may groan when your gym instructor tells you to lunge, but these exercises are very effective in toning your legs and butt.
To switch things up a bit, why not the reverse lunge with a twist, at the gym or at home?
Step 1: Grab a medicine ball and stand with your feet hip-width apart. Holding the medicine ball with both your hands, straighten your arms in front of you. If the ball is too heavy, you can do so without it.
Step 2: Make sure your core is tightened; take a big step back with your left foot. As you put your foot on the ground or floor, lower your body until both of your legs are bent in a 90-degree angle. You will then be in a lunge position.
Step 3: Twist your torso to the right then immediately bring your torso back to middle with your arms outstreched.
Step 4: This step requires you to bring your feet back together, and then step back on your right leg as you twist to the right. This will then complete one rep.
Step 5: For a set, do 12 reps then repeat for two sets.
