Speed skater

The speed skater is an explosive version of the lateral lunge that involves jumping from side to side and landing on a single leg, then touching the ground. It challenges the lower-body muscles, including the quads, hips, and glutes, and the cardiovascular system, while training lateral movement.


  1. Builds strength and power in the glutes, hamstrings, and quads
  2. Improves stability in the ankles, knees, and hips
  3. Works core strength to maintain balance and upright position
  4. Cardiovascular challenge that also builds endurance, balance, and coordination
  5. Requires no equipment
