Dynamic lunges

Primary Muscles Worked: quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus maximus

If you’re going to do a dynamic lunge, it is important to do it correctly so you do not overextend your knees or hips. The leading leg and knee should extend to about a right angle, 90 degrees. Keep the chest lifted to maintain a neutral spine and then return to starting position. Throughout the exercise, keep knees in line with toes and front heel down. Try to do it for 60 seconds.
