Lunges

  • Stand straight, with feet together. Lunge forward with one leg and then bend the other leg; your front knee should make a 90-degree angle over your foot. You'll feel a stretch in the hip flexor in the front of your back leg.
  • Return to the starting position.
  • An Alternative: Walk forward as you lunge alternating legs.

Number of Sets: Do three sets of 10 repetitions on each side. For walking lunges, do three sets of 20 steps.
