Lunge

This week we are looking at a forward lunge. A forward lunge requires excellent control over the body and strength in the legs to lift and recover the leg.

  •  Tips to achieving a good lunge:
  •  Turn front foot out to 45 degrees
  •  Turn the back foot out to 90 degrees
  •  Keep front knee turned out and over toes
  •  Lock back leg
  •  Push into front knee800_6367
  •  Take body forward to create a straight line from head to back heel
  •  Tighten core and keep body very still
  •  Ensure hips are square and straight
  •  Ensure when you recover from a lunge than you lock both legs, especially your   supporting leg
  •  When recovering front foot, it should not be kicked forward but controlled to recover.
