Nailing a move like the lunge can make you feel like a rockstar. By simply stepping forwards or backwards, you can work your quads, hamstrings, calves, and glutes all at once—the perfect addition to a leg day workout, with endless variations. You can even do it with weights, incorporating bicep or hammer curls as you lunge back. And then there are Swan Lake-style ballerina lunges, that whole lunge-around-the-clock sequence from Ariana Grande?s trainer, and—a basic but highly beneficial upgrade—side lunge.
Side lunges are ideal because they take the typical forward-and-back movement to a lateral level, which then works your butt even more. (Yes, please.) The thing is, while they look simple—you just side-step and bend, right?—there are easy mistakes to make.
