Execise of the Week:Lunge, Glute Squeeze, Hop!

Watch the video here! 
Exercise of the Week: Lunge, Glute Squeeze, Hop! - Begin in an alternating reverse lunge, then add in the glute squeeze. The progression can continue by adding and hop to switch legs (High impact isn't for everyone so this is just an option).

Primary Muscles Used: Gluteus Maximus and Quadriceps

Definition of the Gluteus Maximus: the broad, thick, outermost muscle of the buttocks, involved in the rotation and extension of the thigh.

Definition of the Quadriceps: The large, four-part muscle (which includes the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus intermedius, and vastus medialis) at the front of the thigh that arises i n the hip and pelvis and inserts as a strong tendon below the kneecap (patella). The quadriceps straightens and helps stabilize the knee.
