The lunge is a fitness staple – and for good reason. Even the most elite of athletes do not dare knock the lunge: not only does a set of lunges strengthen your legs and shape your backside, this single exercise works the hips, quads, hamstrings, glutes, and abs all at once. When done properly, lunges will challenge your stability and improve your posture. Â Talk about multitasking!
We truly believe that it is the small changes that make the biggest differences – whether it be in your diet, fitness, or even just mindset. Learn how to perform the perfect lunge, and watch your body start to transform!
- Step One
Stand with your feet shoulder's width apart, spine long and straight, shoulders back, gaze forward.
- Step Two
Step forward with one leg into a wide stance (about one leg's distance between feet) while maintaining spine alignment.
- Step Three
Lower your hips until both knees are bent at approximately a 90 degree angle. Your front knee should not extend over your ankle, and your back knee should hover above the ground. Keep your weight in your heels as you push back up to starting position. Repeat on both sides.
