Training for Ladies - Walking Lunge & Stationary Skipping: A great routine to help improve conditioning of the lower body and to be slotted in between regular weight training sessions. This routine is 30 minutes long and can be done pretty much anywhere with a hard, flat surface. Start the routine with a walking lunge. Lunge forward far enough to create a 90 degree angle between the knee and hip joints, ensuring that your knees do not go over your toes. Keep your chin and chest up and pull in the navel towards your spine to activate the core. Don'ts - Not lunging far enough which will bring your knees over your toes or having a short lunge which will mean lost conditioning through your core. The walking lunge is a great exercise to the hit the quads, hamstrings, groin and glutes. Aim for 5 minutes worth before moving onto 1 minute of stationary skipping. For the 1 minute of skipping, ensure you maintain a soft knee when hitting the ground and to keep great posture by activating the core and pulling in your navel. Skipping is a great way to get well conditioned calves. Aim for 5 sets of walking lunges and 5 sets of skipping.
