Step By Step Guide

1

Lunge 1
Keep your upper body straight, with your shoulders back and relaxed and chin up (pick a point to stare at in front of you so you don't keep
   looking down). Always engage your core.

Step forward with one leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Make sure your front knee is directly above your ankle, not pushed out too far, and make sure your other knee doesn't touch the floor.

2

Lunge 2
Keep the weight on your heels as you step forward into the second lunge, keeping the shoulders back and chin up focusing on the point in front of you to maintain balance. Keep your core tight a steady breathing as you move through the exercise.

3

Squat 1
Step up from the lunge, rotating on the ball of your foot which is on the ground into a stance, feet shoulder width apart ready to do a basic squat.  Bend at your knees and hips, sticking out your bum like you're sitting into an imaginary chair. Keep your chest lifted and your spine in neutral. Do not let your lower back round as you squat.  Lower down so your thighs are as parallel to the floor as possible, keeping your knees over your ankles.

4

Squat 2
Lift the other leg up, rotating on the ball of your foot to face the opposite direction into a stance, feet shoulder width apart ready to do your second squat.  Follow the above guidance.  Lift the first leg up, rotating on the ball of your foot which is on the ground to face forwards and lower the raised leg into a perfect lunge position... and repeat step 1 to 4.

Combining lunges & squats for beginners to help strengthen, sculpt & build several muscle groups, including the hips, quadriceps/thighs, the gluteus/bum as well as the hamstrings all at the same time.

A long lunge emphasizes the use of the gluteals whereas a short lunge emphasizes the quadriceps - so remember that when considering which area you wish to target.

Squats also sneakily strengthen the core, as well as improve your balance and coordination.

Healthy Tips

Lemon Water


Without a doubt drinking water is a key part of a healthy functioning and feeling body. 8 cups of water is a baseline but this may vary depending on the individual or training routine. Add a twist of lemon to one glass a day first thing in the morning and you will help digestion and detoxification, rejuvenate your skin and heal your body, help weight loss and boost your energy levels and mood #WINNING
 

Food Cravings

Possibly one of the most useful bits of information I can share with you.

Pick your perfect Tunes


Being a fitness fanatic I generally enjoy getting up and going training HOWEVER there is still the odd occasion where I would rather not put my trainers on! The best way I’ve found to combat this lull of energy and lack of enthusiasm is to turn on my favourite tunes! Nothing better than listening to good music to get you feeling a bit more lively.
