Medicine Ball Lunge Twist

The lunge is a great tool for developing balance and working our glutes, hips, hamstrings, and quads. We saw weighted lunges in our Foundation Workout. These lunges, however, have a twist. Literally. Using a medicine ball instead of dumbbells will allow us to place the weight in front of our center of gravity. This increases the difficulty of the movement, meaning you'll get more out of it. The added rotation of our trunk will ensure we're strengthening our obliques at the same time. To do it, hold a medicine ball in front of you, arms straight. Lunge forward while you rotate your torso, moving the med ball to one side of your body. Push off the front foot and stand back up as you rotate your torso back to the starting position. Alternate legs and repeat.
