Learn how to do Windmill Lunge exercises to work out the lower body with expert tips in this free fitness video clip.
This next exercise I'm going to show you is a variation of the Walking Lunge, but it's called the Windmill lunge. So, what we are going to do is start in the same position as a Walking Lunge. But, as we step we are just going to step in a zigzag motion. So, again, with my back straight, my abs nice and tight, and my shoulders back; I'm just going to take a step out to the side and lunge down. I'm going to come up the center and just zigzag out. Come up. This exercise is going to work into your quadriceps. Also, the inner part of your thighs. As you press up it's going to work in your gluts and your hamstrings, as well. Again, if you like, grab yourself a set of dumbbells. Step out to the side. That back leg, that knee has got to go straight down so your front knee doesn't travel pass your toes. Check yourself at the center and then come on up. Nice, slow, and controlled motion. Very, traditionally weak muscles on the inner parts of our legs. So, you don't want to make the movements too quick or you use too much weight. That's just a variation of a traditional Walking Lunge. It's called the Windmill Lunge and that's how it is properly executed.
