Lunges are a fantastic exercise for your whole lower body, not to mention balance and coordination.

When performing lunges, make sure to keep both toes facing forward throughout the movement and maintain a wide stance before stepping back. Stay on your tip-toe on your back foot (bearing minimal weight).

As you lower your back knee – approximately 2” off the ground – it’s important to bend your knees simultaneously to prevent your front knee tracking forwards over your shoe laces. Your shoulders should remain over your hips the whole time and remember to drive up through the front leg, primarily using the heel.

If you have any knee issues or you experience any knee pain during the movement, lunges may not be suitable for you at this moment; however, you can set a goal to build up to them. Talk to your trainer for more information.
