Workout Wednesday: Jumping Lunge

This week I introduce the jumping lunge:


The jumping lunge is a great exercise because it uses the lower and upper body at the same time. It helps tone and strengthen the hamstrings, quadriceps, calves, shins, glues, abdomen and lower torso. This is a plyometric exercise which is also known as "jump training". These exercises have muscles exert maximum force in as short time as possible to help increase both speed and power. It is a contraction in a rapid or explosive way which helps condition the body. 

Let me know how you like it if you try it! It's a really tough move so for beginners, start with a few and work your way up!
