Barbell LungeFront thigh, hip up
You can handle heavier weights than using dumbbells. You can target not only your hip muscles but also your core muscles by using barbells!
1. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a barbell across your upper back with an overhand grip. 2. Keep your chest lifted and your core engaged.
1. Take a big step forward with your right foot, and lower your body until both knees form 90-degree angles. 2. Push through your heel to return to the starting position, and then repeat the movement with your left leg.
1. When stepping forward, inhale deeply. 2. When pushing back to the starting position, exhale.
1. Make sure to keep your upper body upright and your core engaged throughout the exercise. 2. Make sure your front knee does not extend beyond your toes. 3. Avoid locking your knees when returning to the starting position.
