Movement of the Week: Lunge

This week I’m going to talk about the lunge, or the split squat. It’s a handy movement with many practical uses. In personal experience I’ve also found it to help reverse knee pain.

The split squat is squatting without your feet being parallel. It’s takes about the same amount of time as a squat, but it allows you to move forward or backward from the squat more easily than a regular squat.

There are lots of way to vary the split squat. So try them all out and see where you have trouble! It also helps to build strength for pistol squats if that’s one of your goals.
