Traveling Lunge with Twist

By | Blog, Movements | One Comment

Here is one of my favorite movements for improving hip mobility and creating glute strength/firing patterns. Couple key notes on this move:
1- Exhale as you twist your trunk. Holding your breath will only exacerbate tightness
2- Don’t rush the twist. Take you time and let your breathing dictate your tempo
3- Be sure to pull from your heal as you stand for glute engagement and to take the stress off your quadriceps

This movement can be done with no weight as part of a dynamic warm up, or with weight as part of your strength plan. Don’t have a lot of room for the “traveling” part? Not a problem, simply step back into a reverse lunge instead of stepping forward. Then you can do it anywhere.

If you like to eat sushi, tuna (fresh or canned), or any other fish, then you need to know about the whole food supplement chlorella. Fish can be laden with heavy metals that are harmful to your health. Incorporating chlorella into your meal will help rid your body of these dangerous toxins.
