My friend who is currently in Malaysia recently asked me for some exercises to do around her apartment, and I figured… why not turn it into a post? I recruited my roommate Steph to workout with me and present a few of the exercises to you guys!

Lunge variations:
Forward lunges, Bulgarian split lunge on both sides

Note: make sure your front leg is bending in 90 degrees

Squat variations:
Regular, squat + kick, sumo squat, sumo squat w/ raised heel (both sides), pistol squats (both sides)

Notes:
1) Sit all the way down with both balls and heels flat on the ground
2) Your knees should not go over your toes
3) When coming back up, push through your heels
