Split Stance Lunge – Dumbbell

  • HOW: Get set-up holding a dumbbell in each hand followed by assuming a split stance position. The leg in front will be the side performing most of the work. Once set-up in a split stance position, lower yourself down towards the ground allowing both knees to bend, you should be up on your toes on the back foot. Lower down to what you can control and feel comfortable with, push primarily through the front leg to return to starting position, repeat.
  • FEEL: You will feel your glutes and quads working primarily in the front leg, you will also feel your back leg contributing and your shoulders working to hold the weights.
  • COMPENSATION: Don't lean too far back or put too much weight on the back leg, don't let your knees cave in or bow out, don't lean side to side.
