Lunge jump with rotation is an intense body weight exercise that combines leg and trunk strength.
- Lunge is a functional exercise and it’s a fundamental movement pattern.
- Performing it in an alternated way, we resemble walking movement patterns.
- By adding jumps to this exercise, we burn more calories.
- With the torso twist, we increase trunk strength, mobilization and stabilization.
- Fix the bar on the strips at chest level.
- Stand in front the bar, with your feet at hip width and one foot in front of the other. Like in a big step.
- Engage the core and twist your trunk to the side of the leg you’ve chosen to place in the front first.
- With the trunk highly stable, jump, switch legs and twist your trunk to the opposite side.
- The lunge jump with rotation improves and harmonizes the movement between legs and trunk.
- A lunge increases strength on legs, glutes and thighs.
- It stabilizes the trunk and improves balance.
- By adding a bigger trunk twist and higher jumps, we can increase muscle activity and burn more calories.
