#30DaysToStrongerKnees Day 25: Walking Lunge

Adding movement to a simple exercise can be challenging. When it comes to lunges, the most important thing to remember is to keep your weight in your heels, take a wide enough step so that you can keep your hips and shoulders square, and keep your posture tall.

This exercise is body weight only but can be done with weight when mastered. Start standing with your feet together. Keeping your hips and shoulder square, lunge forward keeping your front knee behind your toe. When your glutes are stretched at the bottom of the lunge, lift your front toe and drive through your heel as you squeeze your glutes and return to standing.

Your goal is to maintain your balance as you walk through lunges- stretching and squeezing your glutes. To start I recommend 3 set of 20-30 reps. Keep good posture, squeeze your core to maintain balance, and keep your weight in your heels to avoid any unnecessary strain on your knees!
