Lunges are easy to do and can be done from anywhere, and they're the ideal exercise for busy people
Eight to 12 lunges per leg will definitely get your blood pumping
The next time you take a break at work, use the time to sneak in a terrific leg-strengthening exercise called the lunge.
The lunge works the larger muscles of the body (the upper thighs and buttocks), strengthening the entire thigh area, while also providing a nice stretch down the inner thighs (see illustration).
Step forward with the right leg, then drop the knee of the left leg straight down until it almost touches the floor. Push off from your right leg to return to the upright starting position. Switch legs. Try doing 8 to 12 repetitions for each leg.
Repeat again if you have time, or do the lunge again at your next break.
