The lunge is another challenging classic that remains a great way to work out your legs and glutes. With the lunge, form is especially important to avoid injury and maximize results.
You want to aim for a lunge that takes your stepping leg to a 90-degree angle while your back knee is nearly touching the ground – and then reverse it. Switch legs doing 10-12 reps on each side to see results (this is also a great exercise to use in intervals).
Another common and similar bodyweight exercise is the mountain climber, which focuses entirely on leg movement and doesn’t require quite as much space.
