I see the adverts ‘People wearing skimpy clothes on spray tanned hot bodies and with a big welcoming Hollywood smile‘ and a phrase underneath the picture that says ” Do lunges”. Of course anyone would fall for that! Myself including. Lunges are the new Botox of fitness. It is so cool and an easy exercise, so soon you start wanting to show off that you nailed by walking around the park like an idiot for 20 minutes.
But as from my experience, nobody tells you about the day after, and that is the hidden catch.
The problem is that nobody tells you that you will walk like a duck the next day after doing lunges, that you will be stuck on the toilet seat counting up to to 10 before getting up because the 2 sides of your bum feels like if you been seating on an ant’s nest. They should really have a crane to lift people post-doing lunges.
Self-tutorial training video are the most misleading advertising I have seen. It looks so nice and easy to follow. ” Harder! No Pain, No gain“. Oh, Oh, hang on, you said nothing about pain before I got into this.
But don’t get me wrong, lunges really makes you to lose weight, and do you know why? Because you can barely get off from the sofa and to walk to the kitchen the next few days!
