Swing Lunge

The swing lunge is great variation to add to your repertoire of bodyweight exercises. No awesome pictures of me with week, you will have to do with a video of Roman instead.

How to do it

Lunge forward with your right leg, then go straight to a reverse lunge with the right foot. Then back to a forward lunge and so on.

Once the desired number of reps have been completed change legs.

Thanks to John ‘Roman’ Romaniello for the exercise.

Lower Body Bootcamp Drill

You too can look like this... with the power of jump squats!

It’s a hard life coming up with drills to inflict muscular damage upon your clients. Here’s one that should help:

Leg  Obliterator Drill

This simple drill works well as a finisher for a sprint or running workout.

Clients should start with 5 reps of each exercise with the exception of the run which is always one. Each round clients do one less repetition of each exercise.

Round 1:

  • 5 Jump Squats
  • 10 Cross-Body Mountain Climbers (5 each leg)
  • 10 Jump Lunges (5 each leg)
  • 50 metre Run

Round 2:

  • 4 Jump Squats
  • 8 Cross-Body Mountain Climbers (4 each leg)
  • 8 Jump Lunges (4 each leg)
  • 50 metre Run

And so on until:

Round 5:

  • 1 Jump Squat
  • 2 Cross-Body Mountain Climbers (1 each leg)
  • 2 Jump Lunges (1 each leg)
  • 50 metre Run

From there start adding one repetition each round until Round 9 in which you should be back to 5 reps on each exercise.
