From standing, step one foot straight back, with your knee bent at 90 degrees hovering just above the ground. Rest your hands on your hips as you lunge to stay level and controlled. The majority of your weight should move down through your front foot, with your knee stacked directly above your ankle. Find balance in this low lunge, with your front shin and torso upright and parallel. Your knee should point forward without flaring out as you lunge. Power up through the front foot while straightening your rear leg to return to a standing position. As you lower into each lunge, inhale, then exhale as you stand. Reset here, then repeat with intention on the opposite side. To load a Reverse Lunge, hold a dumbbell tightly in both hands, hanging straight down from your shoulders. Strong core engagement will help you maintain proper form even in this lower body exercise.
