This week’s favorite exercise is an oldie, but goodie, the Bulgarian Lunge! As my Coach Brooke Erickson – beFIT and I work on my glute-ham tie-in area, this is excellent for building and shaping the booty!
I warmed up each leg holding 2 5-lb plates. I added more weight with each set, focus on going low, back leg is elevated on a bench, lowering that front leg to be parallel to the ground, straight down (not bent forward over the front knee; my torso usually stays more upright as I lunge). I then push back up through the heel planted on the ground. That helps me fire my glutes to achieve the move. At the end, legs be a shaking! I do 4×12 on each leg.
Coming 2015, I’m studying to be a Personal Trainer and will write customized lifting plans to your lifting needs.
