The Kinesis lunge to chest press is a whole body exercise that combines important upper and lower body movements. Choose lower resistance and higher reps for endurance, or higher resistance and lower reps for strength.
Step forwards and lunge, bending the back knee to maintain balance. As soon as you feel grounded, press the handles forwards to complete the movement. Return under control and balance, and repeat for reps.
Hybrid exercises that integrate upper and lower body will require greater engagement of the core, and will also place additional challenges on flexibility, balance and control. As a result, you will notice a greater cardiovascular effect.
