How To: Curtsy Lunge
The curtsy lunge is a variation on a normal lunge and makes use of the sideways plane of movement which means you will get a more rounded tone and workout. It is important to work in different directions when you are training, so the sideways movement of the curtsy lunge is a good one to include in a leg or lower body workout.
To perform this exercise, step one leg laterally behind the other and bend into a lunge. Try to keep your knees facing outwards and sink as low as you can. Keep your head and chest up and use your arms to straighten your back by keeping them out in front of you. Alternate from one leg to the other and take it slow. You should feel this in your glutes and hamstrings but it will also work your back and core.
