#30DaysToStrongerKnees Day 7: Lunge Pulse

If you thought squat pulses were fun, lunge pulse are going to send you through the roof! Glute control and balance all wrapped into one micro-movement exercise

Start this exercise standing with your feet together. With a very wide back step, lunge one leg backwards. Your goal with this is to have enough space to sink your hips down while keeping them square. Slowly lower your body until you reach a 90degree angle with both your front and back leg. At the bottom, make sure your weight is in the heel of the front foot as you squeeze your glutes together and then release. Again, you should only move about 2-3 inches with this movement.

Your goal is to squeeze and release. Starting out, I would do 3 sets of 20 reps on each leg. Controlling your glutes in a single leg stance has an endless amount of applicable benefits from walking to running to going up stairs. Focus on form and keeping your weight in your heel.
