Sliding Lunges
Lunges for the Hips, Glutes and Thighs
This sliding lunge is a new twist on a standard exercise, involving the muscles of the hips, glutes and thighs in different ways. You can do this exercise using a paper plate or Gliding Discs.
  1. Stand with feet hip-width apart, the ball of the left foot resting on the paper plate or Gliding Disc.
  2. Bend the right leg while sliding the left foot backwards into a lunge position.
  3. Keep the front knee behind the toe and keep the back leg slightly bent.
  4. Slowly slide the left foot back to start, pushing into the plate and repeat for 8-16 reps before switching sides.
  5. Keep the weight in the front leg so you always have control of the foot resting on the plate.
