Overview

The donkey run is a quadfocused exercise that can be done with or without weights. To perform the donkey run with weights, start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and holding a pair of dumbbells at your sides. Bend over at the waist and place your hands on the ground in front of you, shoulder-width apart. Step back with your right leg and then bring your left leg forward so that you are in a lunge position. Keep your chest up and your core engaged. Step back with your left leg and then bring your right leg forward so that you are back in the starting position. Repeat this for 10-12 repetitions on each side. To perform the donkey run without weights, simply follow the same steps but do not hold any weights. The donkey run is a great exercise for strengthening and toning your quads.
