Alternating Lunges Guide

  1. Exercise Type: Compound - engages and works multiple muscle groups at the same time.
  2. Targeted Muscle Groups:
    • primary: quadriceps, gluteal
    • secondary: hamstring, hip flexors
    • tertiary: abs, obliques, lower back
    • quaternary: balance muscles

How to perform?

Alternating lunges primarily target the muscles in your legs, including your quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes. Additionally, lunges also engage your core and balance muscles, such as your abdominal muscles, obliques, and lower back muscles, as well as your hip flexors and abductors.

When performing a lunge, the front leg works the quadriceps and hip flexors, while the back leg works the hamstrings and glutes. Your core muscles engage to maintain balance and stability throughout the movement, helping to prevent injury and improve your posture.

Overall, lunges are a highly effective exercise for strengthening and toning your legs and lower body, while also providing a great challenge to your core and balance muscles. If you want to build strength and power in your lower body while improving your stability and balance, lunges are a great exercise to include in your workout routine.
