Sidekick to Lateral Lunge Exercise Hi! My name is Heather. I’m bringing health and fitness to you from West Hollywood, California. I’m going to show you what I call a sidekick to a lateral lunge. You can put your hands like this or however you want to. But basically what you are going to do, sidekick as such you are going to karate chop somebody and step down to a lunge just like that. It is very much a movement for function and if you can get better at those exercises that helps you in your overall functionality as a human being. I’m going to do it again, sidekick and then step down to a lunge. Be very careful that you have kept your chest step the whole time. And make sure you really step back on your heel just like this and really sit back deep into it. Your sit should be moving back towards the wall, sit back towards the wall and really go into a deep lunge. It is very much a movement for function and if you can get better at those exercises that helps you in your overall functionality as a human being because when you have that mobility, a better level of mobility and agility, all of that kind of stuff then you’re just going to feel more energetic in life. This is going to be work in your gluts, your hamstrings, your quads, all the very important muscles that we need to use everyday to be a more functioning human being.
