This is called the Pendulum Lunge. This variation of a traditional lunge help to sculpt your glutes and your thighs. We're going to begin with our feet together holding dumbbells down at our sides, palms in. Step your left foot back about 2-3 feet keeping the heel up off of the floor and bend your knees lowering until your front thigh is about parallel to the floor. Press off the back foot, the back foot and step forward now into a front lunge. Lowering until the front thigh is parallel and then press back and go immediately into the back lunge. Continue alternating forward and back lunges, always making sure that that front knee is behind your toe. Do 8-10 reps and then switch sides and repeat this with your right leg.
