Get ready to generate some serious power! In this drill, Derrick “DJ” Townsel—yoga teacher, personal trainer, and former NFL athlete—will lead you through a 7-minute series of lunges that will build muscle in your legs and challenge your balance and control. (It's a sneak peek from his six-week program with YJ, Yoga for Strength & Flexibility.) You’ll start slow with pulsating lunges, but don’t be fooled: By the time you get to the explosive lunge jumps, you’ll break a sweat.
