I'm not good on the lunges either and definitely prefer the squats, but so it goes!

Oy! I'm sore from my lunges yesterday. I definitely like squats better but I guess I should still do the exercises I don't like right?

I started this up last week. Friday and Sunday. I will definitely be continuing this in addition to my other things!

I have squat and lunge legs today.

Soreness is not my friend, but it proves I was squatting and lunging!

I've been doing a mix up of skater squats, squats with a ball, squats with a ball and hand weights etc. and then challenging myself to lunge.

A year ago I couldn't do lunges because my knees hurt so bad and this morning I rocked them out with a ball... again.

I've been pushing myself to do a few more reps each time.

Keep up the great work!

I'm adding a step up challenge today as well, as yesterday I was doing them on the stairs (2 steps of height) and realized it was a great way to assist with front to back weighting on your skis!

Let's all push ourselves to squat and lunge through the rest of March.

I think we're all pretty much in agreement that they are great strength training exercises to condition for skiing and that those of us who are trying to fit them in are doing well with it.

I'm adding a Challenge that you can add to your goals. See if you can streak some squats and lunges for a few weeks.

Use a balance ball, or do them without, add weights for additional challenge if you must, just bend those knees down to 90 degrees!!!
