Trainer’s Tips

  • Be sure to use a full range of motion in the lunge and lower yourself until your front knee gets close to 90 degrees.
  • Do not allow your torso to fall forward. Keep your chest tall and upright the entire time by engaging your abs.
  • Avoid driving through your toes. Keep your weight on your heels.
