Dumbbell Lunges

Dumbbell Lunges

Primary muscle group(s): Glutes & Hip Flexors, Quadriceps

Secondary: Abs, Calves, Hamstrings

Holding a dumbbell in each hand, stand with your feet shoulder width apart.
Keep your shoulders back. And your back straight.
Take a long stride forward with your right leg. Your right foot should be in a position, that when you bend your right knee, your upper and lower leg form a 90 degree angle.
Slowly bend both your knees, to lower your hips until your left (rear) knee is just above the floor. Hold for a count of one.
Return to the start position by slowly straightening your legs and raising your body back to a standing position.
Complete all the repetitions for one set full set, then switch legs, or you can alternate between legs for each rep.

Note: Do not let your knee travel past your toes in the down position as this can cause instability and injury.
