Do You Want to Walk those Lunges?

This is a Body Sculpting pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 5572)

This walking lunge pattern can give some variety and intensity to the typical walking lunge. Parts of it can also be done in place using the step.
  1. Start with single walking lunges, alternating legs: Cueing: down, up, down, up (4 counts for 1 time on both legs)
  2. Then pulse 3 in the down position, come up for 1: still alternating legs (x 4 or 8 times) Cueing: Pulse it 3,2,1, come up (8 counts for 1 time on both legs)
  3. Then pulse 7 in the down position, come up for 1 (x 4 times) Cueing: Pulse it 7,6,5,... come up (16 counts for 1 time on both legs)
  4. Go back to pulse 3, come up 1 (x 4 or 8 times)
  5. Go back to single walking lunges
  6. Add a glute squeeze and knee lift to the lunge routine: Count 1 is a glute squeeze: straight leg goes back, squeeze that glute hard. Count 2: same leg come forward into a knee lift. Count 3: same leg lunges forward into walking lunge. Count 4: Lift body up to starting position. I cue it: Glute, knee, lunge, up (8 counts for 1 time on both legs). Not only works front and back of leg but balance as well!
  7. Go back and finish up with single walking lunges
Hope your class hates you as much as mine hated me when I introdued it!
