Forward lunges are a great way to exercise your legs. Discover workout tips to strengthen and tone your legs in this free training video.
Hello, I'm Kyle Brayer and your next in-home leg workout will be the forward lunge. The forward lunge is going to focus on the quadriceps, which is the front part of the leg, the hamstrings, which is the back, and the glutes. Karie's going to start with her feet together. She's going to have her hands at her side. She's going to try and keep her hips to her neck in in-line neutral position as she lunges out with her left leg, she comes down and then she'll come back to that same starting position. So here, go ahead and lunge forward with your left, Karie, and pause. From the down position she's making sure that her knee is behind her heel, that this front knee does not come over her toes and that she's keeping from her hips to her shoulders in the in-line position. So one more time, down and back up. Good, and we'll switch legs. Down, and pause. So, again, you can come all the way down to the ground, Karie. So this knee can come in slight contact with the ground. She's just making sure that this heel, the front heel, is in front of the rear knee, and that this front knee is not over her toes. As you can see her hips are in a perfect position so her back is in an in-line neutral position, she's keeping her head and her eyes forward, and then she comes back up. That is the forward lunge.
