Crazy Lunge is called “crazy” because of how intense it is for your legs. It utilizes plyometrics to build great strength throughout your lower body.
How to do a Crazy Lunge:
Get in a normal lunge position with one leg forward (knee bent 90 degrees) and the other leg behind you. Your back knee should not be touching the ground and your front leg should be parallel to the ground. Using your glutes and thigh muscles, jump up and land with your legs and feet in the exact opposite position as the first position. Repeat.
Muscle group worked:
Glute (butt) and thigh muscles
Target Repetitions for Muscle Growth: 6-8
Target Repetitions for Muscle Tone/Endurance: 8-12
Why the Crazy Lunge works:
Crazy Lunge is a plyometric movement. This means that you are recruiting fast twitch muscle fibers to engage more of your legs.
Do not let your front knee every go beyond your toes. This prevents injury to the knees.
Breath in and out slowly throughout the exercise.
