Exercise How-to: Walking Lunge

Walking Lunge

Allow weights to hang by your sides. Keep your head up, back straight.

Step forward.

Landing heel first (heel rolls to toe), moving slowly - making sure your bending knee does not over extend to your toes.

Rephrase: When you are in your deep lunge, look down! You should be able to see the tip of your toes just beyond your knee.

Pause and slowly raise up, stepping into the next (other leg) lunge.

See Adrianna's lunging leg. Perfect!

She can see the tips of her toes -- no risk of over-extending her knee.

*Warning: If this motion is painful on knee joint, modify with side squats.
