When it comes to building your lower body strength, lunges are pretty efficient exercise — not only do they target your glutes, quads, hamstrings and calves, but you’re also working your core, improving your posture, and range of motion. But what would happen if you added 100 lunges to your daily routine for a week? I set out to find out.
As a fitness editor, I’m no stranger to a weird fitness challenge. You can read what happened when I did 100 dead bugs a day for a week, 30 sit-ups a day for 30-days and when I added a minute long plank to my morning routine.
It goes without saying, what works for me might not work for you. If you’re a complete beginner, starting with 100 reps of any exercise is a lot, and it’s a good idea to check your form with a personal trainer before increasing the number of reps you do, or adding weight to an exercise.
