Front And Back Lunges Instructions
1. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, take a step forward and then slowly bend both knees until your back knee is just above the floor.
2. Stand back up, take a step back with the same leg, and bend both knees until your back knee is just above the floor.
3. Repeat this back and forth movement for the entire duration of the set, and then switch legs.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Maintain your back straight, keep your shoulders back and tighten the abs. Breathe in as you lunge and keep your weight in the front heel. Breathe out as you push back up to the starting position, and maintain your feet hip-width apart throughout the entire exercise.
