Leaning Lunge

Target Area: Lower Body 

Equipment: 2 x Dumbbells

  1. Take a large step forward with one leg and lower your body until the knee of your back leg almost touches the floor. 
  2. At the same time, allow your torso to tilt forward 15 to 20 degrees, and allow the dumbbells to hang straight down without bending your back. 
  3. When you lunge forward, land on your heel. 
  4. Push yourself back up and step back into the starting position. Repeat with your opposite leg



Add weight to the movement. This can be in the form of dumbbells held either at your sides or one dumbbell placed on your chest horizontally


Slow the pace down, position your foot further away from your body if you are struggling with your quads and closer to your body if you’re struggling with the movement in your hamstring.
