Secrets of Success

Walking Lunges




Sometimes when I need to go into another room, I'll do "walking lunges" to get there, or other times, I'll just do a few circuits of them around the house if I'm waiting for dinner to cook or something. Its a little thing (and you might feel silly at first) but its definitely a lot more difficult than just walking around the house or to the other room - it gets the heart rate up and tones the muscles at the same time!

    Thank you for the friendly advice! I find lunges hard but if I do them around the house, I am sure the kids will try and copy me and maybe I can finally gt them into exercising! - by SHANNONY84
  • Thanks for the tip! I'll be doing them while I'm trying to fill in some l spare time while i wait for something else to finish. I do them with dumbells now as a part of my workout, but I never thought of doing them while I wait. emoticon - by J2740LOU

    I use my kid's plates too which really helps with portion control. It's a lot closer to what serving sizes should be. - by IAM_1979
  • This is a great idea. You can totally incorporate it at work in the gym, before bed. Thanks for the tip. - by TLR1520
