Exercise of the Week, Vacation Series:  Curtsy Squat/Lunge

The vacation series is a series of bodyweight exercises that can be done anywhere without the need of additional equipment.  They are perfect for staying on task while traveling.

Coach Kristie demonstrates the Curtsy Squat/Lunge.

Start in the standing position, keeping your back straight and activate your core, take your left leg behind you, bending your right leg until the left leg is almost parallel to the ground.  For balance you can extend your arms out to the side.   For added difficultly you can hold in the down position for a count of 5-10 before returning to the standing position.

Start with 10-15 reps each leg.  You can do in straight sets (all on one leg) or alternate (left leg, then right).
