Lateral Lunge – Slider, Band

  • HOW: Anchor a band in a low position. In a standing position, loop the band around the ankle closest to the anchor. Have a slider underneath that foot as well. From here, bend the outside leg’s knee and hinge forward at the waist as you slide the inside leg towards the anchored band keepin the knee straight. At the end of your lunge, pull the slider back in as you straighten the outside leg’s knee. 
  • FEEL: You should feel your quadriceps and glute muscles working in the stabilizing leg. You should also feel the inner thigh muscles working on the sliding leg. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep the knee straight that is sliding out, don’t bend it.
