Exercise of the Month -
Stride Lunge


Once you’ve mastered neutral alignment and the squat you can incorporate the stride lunge into your routine. The stride lunge targets the quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluts. Maintain neutral alignment throughout the movement and concentrate on squeezing your target muscles, particularly those gluts!
  • Start with feet shoulder width apart
  • Finger tips touching the wall or mirror
  • Shoulders down and back
  • Chest up and centered over your knee, keep weight in heel of front leg
  • Hips square
  • Do not let knee come over the top of the toes
  • Hold movement at the bottom to increase intensity
  • Return to start position by squeezing gluts and front leg quadriceps
  • Recommended Routine: 2 sets of 6-10 reps for each leg
