    Push your chest out and take a large step backward, lowering your rear knee toward the ground while keeping your front shin as vertical as possible. Push yourself back to the starting position, and repeat for the desired reps before switching legs.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Do not let the front leg's knee cave inward.
  • Make sure you descend into the lunge by dropping your hips, rather than pushing the knee forward.
  • Don't let the torso drop forward.
