Research has demonstrated that ten-minute walks during the day, or even short, high-intensity (10 seconds “all-out”) intervals can not only improve your cardio-respiratory fitness level, but also increase your metabolic (calorie burning) rate. In this series, April and I are going to break down some of the barriers halting your chance to improve your fitness anywhere you go. 5 of 5: Skating Lunge Speed skaters have some of the strongest and most developed legs (thighs) in sports. The emphasis is on loading the thighs by shifting the weight forward, while keeping the knees behind the toes to reduce wear under the kneecap. With the hands clasped behind across the beltline (just below the waist), stand with feet shoulder-width apart, and knees slightly bent. Lunge forward laterally between 9 and 11 o’clock – while swaying the arms across the body. Stand without touching the back foot to the ground. Perform the same movement to the right side. Repeat 2 more times. Stand in the starting position an alternate bounding left and right 4 times. Turn and repeat in the opposite direction. That’s four lateral skating lunges followed by 4 lateral bounds.
