How To Perform Exercise

The dumbbell lunge exercise helps strengthen and build the legs through the use of dumbbells.

Steps :

1.) Start off grabbing a dumbbell in each hand and standing with your feet about 8 inches apart and toes facing forward as this will be your starting position.

2.) Once in position take a step forward (about 2 to 3 feet), keeping your abs tightly drawn and and your upper body straight.

3.) Continue forward and slowly lower one knee down towards the ground and keeping the other knee bent at a 90 degree angle, not letting the back knee touch the ground.

4.) Slowly lower one knee down as if kneeling while keeping your other knee bent at a 90 degree angle, do not let your knee touch the ground.

5.) Hold the position for a count then return back up to the starting position.

Tips :

1.) Refrain from putting the pressure of your body on one knee as this can cause imbalance and incorrectly performing this exercise.

2.) The knee you are leaning forward on should not move beyond the toe of this foot.
