Curtsey lunge

The curtsey lunge is also known as the ‘glute activation lunge’ because it works the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. If it’s difficult to balance, use a wall for stability until you feel ready to do them on your own.

Step 1. Stand with your feet hip width apart.

Step 2. Step to the right with your right leg and take your left leg diagonally behind your right leg. Bend both knees in to a curtsey lunge.

Step 3. Stand up as you lift your left leg up and take a step to the left. Then take your right leg diagonally behind you into a curtsey lunge on the other side.
