Side Lunge To Curtsy Lunge Instructions

2. Step out to the side with your right leg and lunge.
3. Keeping your weight in the left foot, take a big step back with your right leg, crossing it behind the left.
4. Bend your knees until your left thigh is parallel to the floor, and then step out to the side with your right leg.
5. Repeat for the duration of the set, and switch sides.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Engage your core, face front, maintain your upper body nice and tall, and keep your back straight. Breathe in as you lunge, and keep your knees pointing in the same direction as the feet. Breathe out as you use the lead foot to push you back up.
