Craig's Blog #18!...

Exercise of the month:

I have always been a great fan of the walking dumbbell lunge as a terrific unilateral movement that works almost every muscle in your your lower body. It is a very grueling exercise that is also very taxing on the heart and lungs. I usually perform lunges on the week that I do leg presses as my heavy compound exercise.

Just recently I added one legged leg presses to my Quad workout and did these after full squats instead of dumbbell lunges. This is a fabulous exercise where you can really focus on that all important mind to muscle connection. You need to leave your ego out of the equation here so as to maximize the muscle contraction whilst minimizing injury. I got a great pump in my quadriceps and was certainly hobbling around for a few days after that leg session!! It is a great way to finish your quad workout after pre-exhausting with Leg Extensions and Full Squats beforehand. Give it a try, especially if you want to isolate the quads whilst placing a bit less emphasis on the glutes.
