Fit Minute – Proper Stationary Lunge

In this Fit Minute Friday segment, Nancy demonstrates how to do a stationary lunge and avoid knee pain or injury. Often people say that they are unable to do lunges because of knee pain. What they are not aware of is that in most cases pain is caused by improper form or lack of instruction.   Here is a technique you can use when performing lunges.  Begin with your feet shoulder width apart. Take a large step back with your right foot. This is your starting position.  From this position, lower yourself downward, NOT FORWARD.  Stop at a 90 degree angle at the bottom.  If the front knee drifts over the toe, lengthen your stance.  When you press up, focus on applying pressure through the heel of your front foot. At the top of the motion make sure you do not lock out your knees. Your feet should remain in place, split stance position throughout the entire set.  12-15 repetitions per leg is your goal.  Repeat with your other foot. #FitMinute
