Lunge/Split Squat/Reverse Lunge/Forward Lunge

Lunges are a great way to work your legs independently. This movement allows you to increase your range of motion in your hips, focus on glute contraction, and stabilize with your quads. With an endless variety of this exercise, it’s crucial to ensure your form is correct.

This movement can be implemented while staying in place, walking, or with weight. Begin this movement with your legs in a split stance, wide enough that you keep your front knee from going over your toe. Slowly sit down and back, keeping your weight in the heel of your front foot. Keeping your posture tall, drive through your heel as you squeeze your glute to move back up to standing.
