Walking lunges are one of the most efficient ways of working the entire lower body: the glutes, the quadriceps, the hamstrings, and the inner and outer thigh muscles. Perform this walking lunge with a kettlebell or a dumbbell. A kettlebell is better because you've got the big handle that you can pass from hand to hand. Step forward and as you step forward, pass the kettlebell under your leg. Then continue to move forward, passing it under the leg. Really sink your hips low and don't bend forward in order to get the kettlebell underneath the leg. To progress, add an upper body movement and do a high pull, a single arm high pull, after you pass the kettlebell. Step forward, high pull and repeat.
