It’s coming on summer here in Australia. That means lots of standing around at BBQs drinking beer. To do this our clients need strong legs and a high metabolism. This workout should do the trick.

What are ridiculous lunges? Essentially ridicilous lunges are a compination of jump squats and jump lunges. Here’s how: Start in a squat, jump up and land in the bottom of a lunge position. Jump up again and land back in your squat position. Jump again and land in a lunge position (with legs opposite to the last lunge). Jump back to your squat and start again. Each round (2 jump squats and 2 lunges) equals 1 set.
Go for a 5 minute slow jog to loosen up legs. Stretch.
