10-Minute Toner for the Legs and Gluteal Muscles


by Angie Miller

This exercise video shows you how to do a short lunge series with an exercise band. Lunges are great for toning and strengthening the legs and the gluteal muscles, and with the added resistance of a band you’ll get great results. If you don’t have an exercise band you can do bodyweight lunges, or hold hand weights instead.

Here are a few safety tips:

1. Try to bend your front knee 90 degrees, and be sure to keep your knee behind your toes.

2. My general rule of thumb is that less is more. If lunges hurt your knees, or you’re trying to get mobility back after an injury, just lower and lift a few inches. The main goal is to keep the joints mobile and the muscles strong and active.

3. Be sure to perform the same number of reps on each side, and try to look in a mirror to make sure that you are maintaining good form throughout the exercise.

Lunges are multi-muscle, multi-joint exercises that keep the heart pumping. They strengthen and tone everything from the torso down. If you are looking for time-efficient exercises, they are some of the best.

Sneak in this short workout while you’re on break at work, or right before dinner. Remember that exercise is movement, and you don’t have to set aside a full hour, or even a half hour at a time. You can get in a few segments throughout the day, five or ten minutes each, and everything adds up to give you the results you’re looking for.

Best in Health,

Angie
