Lunge Club W2 – Walking Lunges

It’s Friday. Through yesterday I had done 220 lunges out of my goal of hitting 300 this week, and I have two days left yet, so I should be fine. With the exception of Monday I have been doing basic lunges as shown in the video from my first posting about this. Monday I was at the gym and actually did the walking lunges I’m going to talk about today.

As you’ll see in this week’s instructional video, these are great for the hips, hams and glutes. I’m think for now I’m going to shoot for doing 60 a day 5 days a week, that way if I miss a day during the first part of the week for some reason, I’ve still got a chance to make up for it later without any major pressure. My “office” is in a back hallway area, so I have room where I can do these while at work. I should be able to do 10 lunges down the hall and 10 back. If I make it to the gym, they’ve got plenty of space to do them there… but you don’t need a lot of room. Even if you just do 2, 3, 4 whatever back and forth down the living room or something, that’s all you need. I would need someone to help me count in that situation though, I would lose count way too easy. I’m odd that way…

As usual, thanks to Alysa over at Inspired RD for inspiring this. She called her challenge the “300 Club” after the aim of 300 lunges a week. I’m hoping to beyond that, and since I’m not wanting to totally¬†plagiarize her, I’ve decide to call mine “Lunge Club”. And the first rule of Lunge Club it to talk about Lunge Club. Get a friend or a co-worker of family member to join in this. Misery loves company right? Wait.. I mean… having someone else to do this with is a great motivator! Yea, that’s it.

Or just share with me either here in the comments or on my Facebook page how you’re doing. We’ll motivate each other.
