Dumbbell Lunges

Dumbbell Lunges

Preparation
Stand with dumbbells grasped to sides. Place feet a comfortable width apart, around shoulder width or slightly wider. Toes pointed straight.

Execution
Lunge forward with first leg. Land on heal then forefoot. Lunge down so that your front leg is bent to about 90 degrees and your back knee nearly touches the floor. Return to original standing position by forcibly pushing off. Repeat by alternating lunge with opposite leg.

Comments
Keep your head up and abdominals contracted during the lunge. A long lunge emphasizes the Gluteus Maximus, and a short lunge emphasizes the Quadriceps. Your front knee should not extend in front of your toes and should not bend more than 90 degrees.
