Rotating Alternate Lunge
The Rotating Alternate Lunge strengthens the legs, hips and torso. The rotation develops and strengthens basic motor patterns and makes the exercise very functional. Functional exercises transfer the benefits to daily activities, such as working in the back yard or playing with your children. Keep the rest periods short for a great conditioning workout.
