12 Days of Fitness: Day #5 Jump Lunges


On the fifth day of Fitness

My Y Coach gave to me:

10 Jump Lunges

5 triceps pushups

5 dive-bomber pushups

2 minutes of wall squats

And one minute planking by the tree

Jump lunges are a plyometric exercise that can be incorporated into any training program. They leverage your body weight and work your hamstrings and quads. You need to make sure you are on a stable surface (with some padding, preferably). You might need to avoid this if you have issues with


your knees or hips. To get added benefit from the exercise, really try to JUMP between lunges. You don’t need to go fast. Good form is key in every exercise. If you are unable to perform jump lunges try the reverse lunge, 10 on each side as an alternative. Remember, throughout this challenge and any time you exercise safety and good form are key.
