Barbell_front_lunge

Super-set 1  

Exercise 1: Barbell front lunge

You can either use a rack or clean the barbell to the starting position, wrists back, barbell at your fingertips and resting on your shoulders. The key is to keep your elbows high (shoulder level) throughout the move. Perform the lunge on one side finishing your reps and switch legs and repeat on the other side.

Exercise 2: Walking push-up

Perform a pushup with your feet close together. For the next one, move your feet slightly apart to “walk” the push up to one side (see next photo). Perform the pushup and then move your feet together moving towards one side to perform another push-up with your feet together. Keep your core tight at all times. Perform half of the reps moving towards one side and the other half towards the other side. When moving to each side make sure that you don’t lift your hips. Maintain form at all times.
