Progressions & Variations

Tips

Make sure you descend deep enough into the lunge. The back knee should nearly touch the floor.

Make sure you descend into the lunge by dropping your hips, rather than jutting the knee forward.

Do not let either knee cave inward.

Do not bend the torso excessively forward. Instead, keep your chest lifted.
