How to do Deep Lunges

Deep Lunges

Take a big stride forward with one leg while extending your rear leg back. Bend at your knees to move into the deeper lunge position. Pause for about 2-3 seconds before standing up and switching legs.

Tips

  • If you find it challenging, then practice doing 90-degree squats first.
  • Avoid leaning backward or forward while making sure to keep your neck neutral by concentrating on a point at your eye level.
  • Flex your abs and leg muscles hard for maintaining control when descending.
