Lunges | Stationary, Walking, Smith Machine

December 13, 2011
With lunges, heavy weight is not necessary for effective development. Aaron Marino of alpha m. says that his leg development is attributed to this exercise. Lunges are exceptional for the entire leg.

Aaron demonstrates the stationary lunge first. Remember to stay up on your toe as well as your knee doesn’t come over the toe. To make the exercise more difficult, add dumbbells. Don’t slam your knee into the ground. Another variation¬† are walking lunges. The trick is to take deep steps (long strides). Tap your toe for stability and balance. You can also add weight to this exercise. You can also do a version on the Smith Machine, which Aaron demonstrates.

No matter how perfect your diet is, you’re not going to get the quantities of micronutrients that you need. A multivitamin is designed to give you a baseline, even if your diet is good, to ensure you get the micronutrients to support your body functions. But, not all vitamins are created equal. If you’re taking synthetic vitamins, you’re not absorbing them entirely because your body doesn’t know what to do with them. You end up peeing them out, wasting money. Get your nutrients from whole-food vitamins, which you must take more than one a day because all the micronutrients cannot be packed into a single pill. But your body will know what to do with these nutrients. Also, taking an additional supplement of Biotin is one of the best things you can do for your skin and hair strength. You can take the whole-food multivitamin and Biotin together.
