How to Do Iso Lunges

You can perform exercises such as iso lunges in your hotel room if you’re traveling on the road and your hotel doesn’t offer a gym. Exercising in your room is also a viable option if you are pressed for time or just prefer to exercise alone.

This is an effective exercise for the legs and buns. You can do it with an Exercise Bar for added intensity or just use your own body weight for a great workout.

1Stand with one foot in front of the other.

The distance between your feet depends on the length of your legs. Your feet should be wide enough apart so that when you lower yourself your knees don’t move past your toes.

2Place your Exercise Bar across your shoulders (behind your neck).

The tubing should be under the arch of your front foot. Keep the majority of your body weight in the heel of your front foot and the ball of your rear foot.

3Slowly lower your body downward, keeping your front knee aligned above (never extended past) your front ankle.

Stop the downward movement when your front knee and hip reach a 90-degree angle.

4Return to the starting position and repeat using your other leg.

Beginners can try 1 set of 10 reps for each leg. More conditioned exercisers can try 3 sets of 10 reps for each leg.
