Split Stance Lunge – Rear Leg Emphasis

  • HOW: Begin by stepping one foot forward and the other back with your toes pointed forward in a split stance position. Bend both knees and lower yourself down but shift over half of your bodyweight to the back leg. Push into the ground returning to the starting position. We are going to try to use our back leg as much as possible to return to the standing position!
  • FEEL: You should feel your leg muscles working. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your chest upright. Make sure most of your bodyweight is on the back leg.
