Time for a boatload of Lunges!
A variety of them.
Well and some inchworms for a “break”.

Course…it does look easy on paper!

The Beginning: Bodyweight Lunges and Inchworms

Long Lunge
Short Lunge

Subsequently: One DB Overhead (lighter DB)

With the DB overhead it forces the core to work even harder.

Then: Some more stuff!
