The walking lunge with hip extension is a combination of two movements, both targeting the lower body. The added hip extension places more of an emphasis on the glutes. It is a great inclusion in a dynamic warm-up for the lower body, but can also be performed for time or reps in any workout.
Builds strength in the quads, glutes, and hamstrings
Works core strength to maintain balance and a neutral spine
Improves hip stability and activates glutes and hip muscles
Great component of a dynamic warm-up for lower-body lifting
