The Spider-Man Lunge exercise (also known as the Spiderman Climb) is a variation of the lunge, a body weight exercise. This exercise works best on the flexibility of you hips, hamstrings and lower back, and also the hamstring muscle strength.
- Start in the top of the push-up position.
- Keeping your hips down, and bring your foot up and place it just outside your hand position on the same side.
- return the foot to the starting position, and repeat with the other leg.
If you have poor flexibility, be careful not to overstretch. Bring your foot up half way, and as your mobility increases, slowly work your way to bringing your foot up right beside your hand.
BLESSED ARE THE FLEXIBLE, FOR THEY SHALL NEVER BE BENT OUT OF SHAPE
