Lower Body: Lunge

  • Keep your upper body straight, with your shoulders back and relaxed and your chin up (pick a point to stare at in front of you, so you don't keep looking down). Always engage your core.
  • Step forward with one leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Make sure your front knee is directly above your ankle, not pushed out too far, and make sure your other knee doesn't touch the floor. Keep the weight in your heels as you push back up to the starting position. This counts as one lunge.
