Lunges+Lifts & Lunge Pulses #AToZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z


Well begun is half done.


Motivational Workout Quotes


And it is already half done. And too with flying colors. You have come up halfway. Be proud. And strive for progress. Today we are going to do LOT of LUNGES. Don’t be scared. You can do it.


Lunges + Lifts

Stand in a lunge position with your left leg forward. Drop your right leg down. Keep your torso straight. Try to get the right knee as close as possible to the floor. Keep left knee over the ankle. It should not cross your toes. Slowly come up and lift your right leg and drop right back. Switch side and repeat.

Start with 45 seconds.  Gradually, you can increase as per your strength. Remember to keep those abs tight and torso straight. Keep it slow and controlled.



Lunge Pulses

Get into a regular lunge. Stay down low. Don’t come all way back up. just drop down few inches and come few inches up. Maintain that range of motion.

Start with 45 seconds.  Gradually, you can increase as per your strength.

It strengthens your core. Lift your butt and give you a bigger and rounder butt. Remember to put your weight on both the legs while you bring the rear leg doDon’tDont put much pressure on the front leg.

When can you do ?? Best time for any workout is in the morning. You can also do in evening after at least 4 hours of a heavy meal. Never perform any workout on a full stomach.


The Body part of the day – L


The lungs are the primary organs of the respiratory system. During seasonal changes, we often get a cough or cold. Follow some simple steps and keep your lungs healthy.

  • Practice deep breathing.
  • Laugh more often.
  • Add a mini garden to your home.
  • Wash your hands. Keep hygiene
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Eat healthily.
  • Keep distance from smoking.
  • Last but not the least, exercise.

Tip of the day

Whoever said laughter is the best medicine..was right. Cultivate the art of good humor.

That is on my personal notice board.



P.S –

These are just single workouts. Warm up and cool down are not included in this. Know that your body has limits and you should respect it. Do only as much as your body allows you. Little pain is absolutely normal as the muscles stretch, but if you feel more pain then you are doing something wrong. Stop doing it and consult a doctor if necessary. I am not a personal trainer, this is meant to be the inspiration for you as a way to break workout boredom.

  1. Your posts are useful anami


  2. Laughter is very good medicine indeed. Another way to look after the lungs is to avoid foods that might cause excess mucous to form. Some people get coughs not from smoking tobacco but from food such as eggs and diary produce. That can be proven in those cases, but are perhaps atypical from the standardised picture of human health.

    Anami, would like to know whether the person with back pain should take up lunges? Specially if someone is advised not to engage in the exercise that brings strain to lover back, like forward bending?

    • Yes, definitely you can do lunges. In fact, when done correctly lunges are very effective back strengthening exercise. That is where most people do mistake while lunging. Do not bend forward. Here are few tips you can follow. Keep your back straight. Do not lean forward. Do not move the front knee. When done correctly, it should strengthen your back and prevent pain. You can do simple lunges without the lift shown here. Best of luck. I am glad you are taking interest in my posts. Thank you. 🙂

  5. The lunge and lifts is a newer exercise for me. Never tried it before. Thanks for this.


  6. CRD

    Im definitely trying this….thank you for the variations you showed.


  7. Anami, do lunges out some extra pressure on knees? I try to keep my knees protected and would doing lunges with weights put undue pressure on them?


    • It puts a little bit of pressure on your knees. But if you do correctly lunges would not give you knee pain. Try to keep the front knee stationary in a reverse lunge. And do not overdo and do not force your body.
