Learn how to lunge: Correct form & benefits

Monday, October 03, 2016. Author Paul Rose

One of the most overlooked, underutilized primal movement patterns from many workout routines is the lunge. It is mistakenly considered by most to be an easier, less effective alternative to the squat.

Similar to the squat, the lunge works the prime muscles of the lower limbs: the quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, hips, calves; and develops core stability.  The lunge actually involves a greater range of motion for the glutes and hamstrings, supporting their development.

Not to forget it is very metabolically demanding – meaning it burns lots of calories!
