Stand tall with your hands by your sides. Smoothly lunge one foot out to the side, keeping the other foot firmly on the ground.

Avoid letting the knee extend out pass your foot, once you have placed the foot down, have a brief pause, then use your inner thigh and buttock muscles to bring the foot back to a standing tall position.

You can make the exercise harder by doing an arm exercise such as bicep curls, whilst working the legs.

Working one side at a time will work the muscles harder.

Stretch and Warm Up before you commence any exercise and aim to finish with some good stretching to let your body and mind recover.
