High Lunge for Women
- High Lunge From downward-facing dog, step your left foot between your hands, keeping your right leg straight. Inhale, then raise both hands directly overhead, lifting your hips until your left thigh is parallel to the floor. Hold for two breaths, then press through your left heel to straighten your front leg.
- Slowly return to start; repeat this sequence five to 10 times, then switch legs and repeat.
Performance perk: The high lunge strengthens the feet and ankles and stretches the calves, hip flexors, and groin--all of which make this move perfect for runners.
