Lunge

Why do we lunge? We don’t see it as often as a squat, but why lunge? If you think of the lunge for what it is, a single leg exercise, then you can see the benefit. Quite a few people tend to struggle with the lunge, especially when you start to add weight. Not only does it require quite a bit of strength, especially when you want to go heavy, but it also requires a bit of balance as well. We don’t want to think feet straight like we’re walking a tight rope, more like shoulder width apart keeping a wide base. We also need to make sure we have the strength to do the weight we choose, meaning the back knee should just kiss the ground. If it’s slamming the ground probably means you don’t have the strength to control your leg down toward the ground. If you find it super difficult, maybe start adding in some more lunges to your routine??
