Lateral Lunge Exercises

Great for sports players. Lateral lunges invoke the 
side-to-side movement of football, tennis and
basketball, not seen in other body weight exercises.

    Coaching Points

    • From a standing position, take a big step to the side placing your full foot flat on the floor and your toes pointing slightly out.
    • In a controlled movement bend into this leading leg. I want you to imagine you have a chair behind the leading leg and you are trying to sit back on this chair.
    • Your non-leading leg should remain in a fixed position and straight.
    • From the bottom position, think about pushing the floor away to return to a standing position.
