Weekly Wednesday Workout: Cross Behind Lunge

So for this weeks workout we are going to try some cross behind lunges:


These are hard, I have done these before in total body class and oh my word–The BURN! You can do these with weights or without. I would do them with weight because the burn in the legs will most likely cancel out the burn in the arms if you were holding dumb bells :). If you have knee issues I recommend you stay away from this exercise. It is one of those moves that you need to concentrate to execute properly or before you know it you will be on the floor.

You feel it in your glutes, quads, hamstrings–ALL of that. Usually after a couple of sets, you feel it the next day as well. Just a fun twist on the ordinary lunge!


Would you try the cross behind lunge?

Ok. I’ll try it, but I can see me tipping right over. lol. It looks like a good workout. If i can keep my balance, I’ll do as much as I can 🙂

I don’t even have knee issues and I am going to stay away I will fall but this looks like it will work those muscles out though

She’s right, it looks just like the curtsy lunge. I can get with it..we did curtsies Monday! These post help me think outside the box! Thanks girl!

Glutes, quads, and hamstrings…those are my main problem areas! I’m definitely going to cry my way through these! This is much needed. Thanks for posting!

Love these! I call them curtsey lunges.

If these are the same as curtsey lunges (they looked the same in the video), I’ve done them. They are killer for sure!
