How to Do a Walking Lunge

A Simple Move to Tone and Lift Your Butt

Add a walking lunge to your workout, and step right into that miniskirt. Considered a basic lunge with a boost, this move only works your glutes, hamstrings, and quads, giving you lovely gams and a lifted butt. Walking lunges also make for a great active stretch of the hip flexors, so incorporate them into your warmup or cooldown.

  • Stand upright, feet together, and take a controlled step forward with your right leg, lowering your hips toward the floor by bending both knees to 90-degree angles. The back knee should point toward but not touch the ground, and your front knee should be directly over the ankle.
  • Press your right heel into the ground, and push off with your left foot to bring your left leg forward, stepping with control into a lunge on the other side. This completes two reps.
  • Do three sets of 20 reps each.

Increase the difficulty of the move by holding dumbbells — five to eight pounders — by your sides.
