The goal of a typical lunge is to strengthen quads, hamstrings, glutes in an athletic or aesthetic context. The goal of a DB Lunge is to build a stronger foundation and improve kinetic hygiene. Pay extra attention to these two first instructions to prepare for our next Telebilitation show next Wednesday. Practice alignment, check yourself in the mirror.
- Set your base (if you don’t start right you’ll finish wrong). Engage Pelvic Tilt & Chin-to-Throat. Feet are hip width apart. The knee, hip and shoulder are aligned in a single plane.
- Grip, maintain position, and avoid distortion of base. Double check your stacked shoulders and hips.
If you see your base distorting, then back off. Bring your legs closer together. Really focus on squaring up- hey that’s your new exercise! Square. Relax. Square. Relax. Go slow. Wake up your pelvis and hips to these nuances.
