100 Lunges daily!!~ Shine in 49: Day 15

Our “SHINE in 49”  Week #3 Mini Challenge is 100 lunges a day!!

Your mini challenge if you choose to accept
it is to do 100 lunges each day this week!!
That’s 100 total, so 50 each leg.
This week’s mini-challenge is one of MY FAVORITES!!
To do 100 lunges a day takes mental and physical
determination~ BUT I know you can do it!!!!

The way I approach the lunges are to use a VARIETY
of types of lunges and to not get over zealous the
first few days of the week  Most days I will opt
to do just body weight lunges, but on my leg days
I’ll add weight for sure.

Some variety of lunges you may want to try:

Stationary lunges
Walking lunges
Side lunges
Jumping lunges
Skater lunges
Jumping Skater lunges (plyo)
Starter lunges
Box/Step lunges
Smith lunges
Forward lunges
Backward lunges
DB lunges
Barbell lunges
Russian lunges (lean way forward)

a few videos of lunges:
Bulgarian or Single leg squat -no weight demo
Starter style Walking lunges no weight
Walking lunges no weight
BuffMother! Smith Lunges (butt emphasis)
BuffMother! Smith Lunges (basic)
A key point to keep your lunges working your booty
is to focus on using your front leg for the majority
of the movement. Doing this will get more emphasis on
your butt rather than your quad, remember to use your
front leg for the motion and also leaning forward
(chest to knee) adds extra booty emphasis.

And the KING of lunges for the booty have been shown
to be WALKING lunges 🙂

You will feel them TRUST ME!!

Have fun doing your 100 a day!!
Rock that Booty!!!
