This week was all about trying something new.

Hi friends: Another great holiday weekend here and just wanted to share one of the new activities I tried this week.

After a night out with friends – where hilarity ensued; we thought it would be  a great idea to channel our inner Serena Williams…Just one problem, normally when it comes to excersise that involves equipment – I’m like a total spaz.

To prepare for this epic event I wanted to pay some respect to my lower body. I rocked out with a lunge challenge; and while my career as a tennis pro is questionable tongue smiley lunges are a perfect all round excersise.

AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible)
forward lunge; reverse lunge and Curtsy lunge

1. Curtsy lunge: Start standing with your feet hip width apart, and then, keeping your weight in your left foot, take a big step back with your right leg, crossing it behind your left leg (as if about to do a ‘curtsy’). Slowly bend your knees and lower your body straight down until your front thigh is parallel to the floor, and both knees are bent at 90 degrees.

2. Forward lunge: Take a wide step forward with your right foot as you bend your knees, lowering your body into a lunge. Both knees should bend at a 90-degree angle, and the front thigh should be parallel to the floor, keeping your knee behind your toes. (Same again with left leg)

3. Reverse lunge: Take a wide step backward with your right foot as you bend your knees, lowering your body into a lunge. Both knees should bend at a 90-degree angle, and the front thigh should be parallel to the floor, keeping your knee behind your toes.

You gotta make both sides even, so same thing on the other sidesmiley-face1

Changing up my workout routine was a great way to keep it fun. What do you do to keep your workout from getting boring?

Enjoy XO
