After doing this workout, I woke up in the middle of the night and wondered what I did to my butt before I realized it was sore from the booty burner I had done the morning before. Usually I’m not super sore until 36 hours after the workout (hello, buns!) so I was surprised when I was up and already feeling the repercussions of all those lunges! And yes, in case you’re wondering, the DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) is even worse right now!
Be sure to warm up a bit before doing this. I recommend a solid 10 minutes of any endurance cardio. As always, check with your doc before making any changes in activity levels!
1. When you lunge, in whichever direction, make sure the knees always stay over the feet and don’t go out past the toes.
2. Take your time with the lunges! There’s no race here. Form over speed.
3. If you happen to have free weights, you can hold them while doing your lunges, although you don’t need to in order to get the achieved results.
4. Use anything you have for a step. The higher, the harder and more glute recruitment.
Let me know if you give it a try!
