For day 3 on lunges I am giving just a few simple variations to the runner's lunge. Runner's lunge has so many benefits and there are so many different variations. Below are just a few of my favorites!
Here is just a simple one. Take your upper arm overhead and your gaze up to your hand. Elongate the side body by reaching your heel towards the ground and your fingertips to the ceiling. Sink your hips down low and keep them squared off to the side of your mat.
This pose is the same as above, but your arm is placed on the outside of your front leg. You will be able to feel the difference here. Try it out! This just gives you a little twist, but remember to keep your front knee on top of your ankle and behind your toes.
This pose is a fantastic variation to runner's pose. It gives you a deep twist. Don't get too intimidated though... there are different steps to getting into it and taking them one at a time can make it easy. First, place your upper arm on the small of your back. Once you feel comfortable doing so, release your lower hand from the ground and reach it below your thigh. Then to finish the pose, interlace your fingers behind your back and take your gaze to the ceiling.
Like I have said in my previous post, it is all about getting creative. Get down on your mat, take a lunge, and then move. See what you can come up with and feel through each movement.
