Reverse Lunge With a Twist
This one almost sounds like a cocktail, doesn't it? One look at this move and it doesn't seem that difficult, and you'd be right. It's not the hardest move, but if done correctly, it can be a move that'll help you reshape your lower body in less time than you'd think. "It works your legs like any lunge, but it also targets your core," Wood told us.
How to Do It:
- Stand with your feet hip distance apart. Hold a five- to 10-pound medicine ball with both hands with your arms outstretched in front of you. You can do the move without the weight if it's too difficult.
- Keep your core stable, and take a large step back with your right foot, planting your foot and then lowering your body until both legs are bent in right angles.
- As you sink into the lunge, twist your torso to the left.
- Bring your torso back to center, and exhale as you straighten your legs. Bring your feet back together, and then step back on your left leg, twisting to the right.
- This completes one rep. Do 10 reps for a set, and do at least two sets.
