Your body should still be erect without leaning ahead and core should be engaged.

Step 3: Wait in this position for 10 seconds and then go back to the starting point. Now, bring your left leg forward and repeat the process. Feel the stretch in your heels, quads and glutes. Try to keep the pressure on the knees to a minimum. If you feel the strain too much, take shorter lunge strides.

Once you learn the correct way to do a lunge, you can do different variations. For example, try doing a backward or side lunge instead of a forward one. Or, do walking lunges where you take steps ahead instead of standing stationary at one point. Another way to increase the intensity of this exercise is by adding weights. Do a bicep curl while doing lunges to work on your upper body as well.

Tip: It is better to do a lunge in front of a full-length mirror to see if your form is right. Once you learn the correct way of doing it, you can practically do it anywhere
