Test & Re-Test: 9/10/18

The walking lunge targets the quads, glutes and hip flexors and with enough of them can make a brutal work-out. Using proper technique for the lunge is essential for protecting the muscles of the legs and the knees.

Coaching Tips:

  • Stand tall
  • Core engaged
  • Hands are at the sides, behind the head, or on the hips (NOT on the knees as you lunge)
  • Step forward in line with the hips with one foot
  • Plant the foot so that the knee is over the ankle and NOT forward of the toes
  • Bend the rear leg until the rear knee gently touches the ground
  • Stand up completely as you move from one lunge to the next
