Green Exercise: Add Lunges to Your Walks

Green exercise is all about working your body without using electricity to get you going. Walking is a cheap and simple way to burn calories and you can do it anywhere, but it can be a little boring. So I add walking lunges to my walks to not only stretch the muscles in my lower body and increase flexibility in my hip flexors, but lunges also strengthen my quads and booty.

  • Begin by walking for ten minutes.
  • Then stand with your feet together. As you inhale, take a huge step forward with your right foot. Exhale, and bend your right knee and lower your left knee into a lunge position with your left heel lifted. You can lower your left knee as far down as you want until you feel a good stretch in the front of your left hip. Then inhale as you step your left foot forward to meet your right foot. Then exhale to prepare for the next lunge.
  • Now inhale, and step forward with your left foot. Exhale, bend the left knee and lower your right knee into a lunge. Inhale, and step your right foot forward to meet your left. Then exhale to prepare for the next lunge.
  • Repeat on both sides 10 to 20 times, and then go back to regular walking for 10 minutes. Then repeat the walking lunges a second time, and then walk for another 10 minutes.

Fit's Tips: Do these with a walking buddy so you don't feel silly, or walk on a quiet neighborhood street. Or you can use the indoor track at your gym, where people are doing all kinds of crazy fitness moves, so this will seem pretty normal.
