Static Lunge

The static lunge is an isometric (stabilization) variation of the well-known move. Lower your lower body moving one leg forwardly, then pause (aim for 15-30 seconds). That's one rep; repeat on the other side.
It is an intense exercise that will make your quads and hamstrings burn. You core will also be engaged a lot in order to stabilize your frame. Do 4 alternative reps.

Pros:
  • Works the entire leg and core.
  • Can be done anywhere.
Cons:
  • Can be brutal if you're just starting out, might make your knees really sore. If you're experiencing any pain after your workout, rest and wait until you body heals.

Firstly: stand with your feet slightly wide.

Go down in a controlled manner and pause.
