Power Lunge Power Squat Exercise Hi, I'm Mimi from Brazil and this next exercise I will teach you is one of my own. I really like this exercise because you're working your entire lower body. Also, you're keeping your heart rate way up there. This is a very hard exercise, intermediate to difficult level. It really gets me after all these years that I've been working out. It gets me out of breathe. I call it the power lunge power squat. If you throw in the middle of your routine, you're going to elevate your heart rate to like you know to the max and you're going to start sweating. And you're going to feel in your legs and for sure, you feel really, really sore after you do it. So pretty much you're going to be going to two lunges, one lunge with the right leg, and one lunge with the left leg. Right is training to a power squat. I'm going to teach you how to do it. First think you do, make sure you have one leg in front of the other, hips forward, chest out, abs in. take a deep breathe in. and the first thing we’re going to do is a lunge. Go down the lunge, jump up, switch legs, jump, squat and back, and two. Remember, keep your abs tight. You don’t want to hurt yourself. Three, you should do it around like 10 repetitions like two to three sets. Start with two sets and go to three and that’s about it. So I really love doing that and give me my clients and kind of like finishing up with that exercise. It just kind of like killing them and like they come up to me and actually they say like, I love it. I'm so sore and I know exactly the muscles what we’re working. If you do this exercise, I guarantee you're going to have the best lower body in town. My name is Mimi and I’ll see you next time. Thank you.
