FitFact: Lunges

BASIC LUNGE. They do not always have to be done with weights.  Try out your body weight first, and then build up to using some resistance.

Try on your own or with our trainers!  Here’s how it works:

  1. Stand with left foot forward and the right one back.
  2. Keep abs and glutes tight as you bend the knees and lower the body down.
  3. Bend only until the knee is a few inches above the floor; make sure your front knee is NOT over your front toe.
  4. At the bottom of this movement, your thigh should be parallel to the floor and the back knee should point down toward the ground.
  5. Keep torso erect and stand back up.
  6. Repeat x 12.
  7. Switch sides.
