Exercise of the week- Reaching Lunge

Peter Mathews

Peter doing a Reaching Lunge and Press


  • Start in a standing position;
  • Step one leg forward and reach with arms extended;
  • Keep your spine straight and stomach tight and do not allow your front knee to bend greater than 60 deg (knee should be bent no further than base of toes);
  • You should feel tension in your upper hamstring but mostly your glute muscles;

Repeat this action now on the other leg. Try doing 3 sets of 8 reps on each leg. Let us know how you get on.
