    What is a flying lunge please?

    • Caitlin April 24, 2012 at 10:03 am #

      To do a flying lunge start in a regular lunge position with your right leg forward and leg leg back (just like you do for toning), then jump straight up into the air to switch your feet so your left leg is in front and right leg is now in back.Jump up again and switch and so on. Go nice and slow making sure your knees stay behind your toes and you sink down into the lunge each time. You should really feel this one in the legs:)

    And what exactly is a front kick? Just a regular straight-leg kick up?

    • Caitlin April 25, 2012 at 11:59 am #

      These front kicks are borrowed from kickboxing. Start in a standing position and you will alternate right kicks and left kicks to the front. Start with feet together, contract your abs as you lift the right knee up, flex the foot as you kick to right leg out to the front. Use your hamstring as you bring your foot back in and down to the floor. Repeat with the left leg. Repeat back and forth the faster you go the harder it is:) . Let me know if that helps!

        Yep, that helps! I’ve only been following this blog a little while, and can usually google to find a definition that makes sense, but that was a little too general. If you have a basic glossary on here of the moves your workouts use, point me to it. Thanks!

    Do you know how many calories this burns. Or about how many?
