Trimmed and toned legs make you look slim and tall. Without the extra weight from your thighs weighing you down, your body will feel lighter (and look lighter, too). Our 14-Day Lunge Your Way to Long and Lean Legs Challenge offers the perfect mix of lunges to tone and build every part of your legs.
Lunges are a lower-body workout that targets your leg muscles. With a little isolation, they can also help strengthen your core. Each lunge is a leap outward (or to the side) that fully extends your muscles before bringing it back for a full contraction. The longer you reach, the more you’ll activate your leg muscles. For this challenge, you’ll want to extend as much as possible.
Since you’re going to be doing multiple lunge variations, your lower body muscles will get tired pretty quickly. If you don’t fully extend your muscles, lactic acid can build up and you’ll find yourself burned out a lot faster.
Stretch, step, and lunge your way to a toned and lean lower body!
