Forward lunge alternating is a great bodyweight exercise for sculpting the lower body. The thighs and butt are the primary movers in the lunge exercise. Alternating each leg for a high number of repetitions or for an extended duration – makes the exercise more aerobic. This challenges the cardiovascular system and burns a lot of calories. Adding resistance to the lunge is another way to challenge your lower-body to change.
