Outer Unit

Variations

  • The reaching side lunge is an intermediate level exercise, that targets the quads, the glutes, the hamstrings, the adductor muscles of the hip and the back extensor muscles. This exercise also develops adductor dynamic flexibility and promotes internal hip rotation.
     

  • The chopping side lunge is a variation of the side lunge, suitable for intermediate and advanced fitness levels. Swinging the medicine ball overhead while stepping out into a side lunge emphasizes the stretch on the adductor muscles of the hip.
