The medicine ball walking lunge with upper body rotation is a good exercise that will burn fat and shape and tone your butt, hips and thighs.
It will also improve your core strength, lower body strength and dynamic balance. In short, it is one of the best exercises you may not be doing! If that’s the case, start by doing regular walking lunges. Either exercise is very difficult to do correctly.
Do the medicine ball walking lunge with upper body rotation this way:
When you do the walking lunge with upper body rotation, keep your torso upright, don’t let your front knee go past the front foot and don’t let the back knee touch the ground. Also, when you lunge, the front thigh should be parallel to the ground. Rotate your upper body with the medicine ball in both hands when you lunge (see picture above).
Do this exercise as a warmup or regular workout exercise. To work your hamstrings more, lunge out further with the front leg. A shorter lunge will work the quadriceps more. Most women need more hamstring strength to prevent injuries.
It is best to train your body using your natural body motions (everybody moves differently). Medicine ball, free weight and bodyweight exercises allow you to move naturally. You are also forced to correct your weaknesses.
Increase the weight of the medicine ball to increase difficulty.
Include the walking lunge with upper body rotation in your regular workouts.
