Variations for Lunges
A lunge without moving the feet, this increases the challenge by using your arms overhead.
The ball gives you a little bit of stability and makes stationary lunges more interesting than they are without the ball.
This exercise adjoins the upper body with the lower body-you will get a back and shoulder workout by touching the ball to the floor and a leg workout by doing the lunges.
