#30DaysToStrongerKnees Day 22: Jumping Lunge

Adding a jump to any exercise will make it more challenging. If that is too much for you, use a modified version without the jump.

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 legs. At the bottom, make sure your weight is in the heel of the front foot as you jump and switch legs.

Your goal is to squeeze your glutes to fire the motion while stabilizing with your core. Starting out, I would do 3 sets of 20 reps alternating legs. I recommend moving slowly, with control until you get the motor control down for the movement.

If you’re uncomfortable posting a video, you can always post a motivational quote, picture, or something health and fitness related.Make sure to encourage others, and never, never judge! Again, this is a judgement free zone!
