Exercise Instructions:

  1. Hold a pair of dumbbells in each hand, keeping your shoulders pinned back and chest up.
  2. Take a step back, creating a 90* bend at the front knee. Be sure to keep your front foot planted flat on the ground.
  3. Drive back up to the start position by pushing the quad of your front leg HARD into the ground. This is a great way to get the benefits of lunges, without the pressure on the kneecap which is associated with WALKING lunges.

Muscles Worked:

Quads, hamstrings, glutes.
