Dumbbell Lunges


  1. Take possession of suitable weight dumbbells. You are standing upright with arms hanging at your sides and palms face inward. Ensure you have adequate room to lunge forward. Core is tight, feet are flat on the floor. This is your starting position. 
  2. Keeping your core tight and your torso as straight and upright as possible, inhale and lunge forward on one leg and drop down until the upper thigh of the leading leg is parallel to the ground. The knee should not go forward past toe line. The knee of the back leg will stop just before touching the ground. 
  3. At this point, commence the ascent by exhaling and driving up from the heel of the leading foot and back to the starting position. 
  4. You may choose to do your lunges either stationary or walking. You may elect to focus on one side to a set before changing or alternate repetitions one side then the other.
