Lunge and Chop - Grind

by Keli Roberts


Lunges offer a super efficient way of training a lower body and this lunge sequence is a good one. We start with a simple exercise and build progression. First, perform a front lunge with a chop. Perform this slowly to learn and master the move. Step forward as you chop across, push back, and bring the kettlebell back to the rack position. In order to progress this, do this ballistically. Chop down and push back fast so it becomes faster. Now, this happens off one side of the body. Make sure you get both sides evenly.
