Proper Form of a Lunge

A lunge is a compound exercise that works your glutes, hamstrings, calves, quads and requires you to balance.  There are hundreds of different types of lunges, but today we will focus on the proper form of a static lunge.

I do lunges in almost every class I teach and with all of my clients.  Nothing will tone up your legs faster than some lunges.  Try static lunges first; then Rachel and I will post some fun variations to challenge you booty, inner/outer thighs and core.

Please watch the quick video below for proper form.


PLF Daily Tip:  If you aren't already doing lunges, then add some lunges to your routine.  Make sure you are doing them correctly, so that you do not injure yourself.

Here's how to incorporate lunges into your workouts:
*Start with holding your lunge isometrically for 20 seconds to 1 minute.
*Then you can perform a static lunge by moving straight up and down.  You want to do around 15-20 reps to start with.
