Overhead Static Lunge
How to: Overhead Static Lunge
Primary Muscles Used:Upper Legs, Glutes, Quads, Hamstrings
- Hold a medicine ball with two hands directly over your head — your arms should be in line with your ears. With your feet hip width apart, take a large step forward to position your feet in a split stance with one foot forward and one foot back. This is your starting position. Inhale and bend both knees to approximately 90 degrees. When done correctly, your front knee will be aligned with your ankle and your back knee will be hovering just off the floor. You should feel the weight going through your glutes, quadriceps and hamstrings.
- Exhale and drive through the heel of your front foot extending both knees to return to the starting position. Complete half of the specified number of repetitions or time on the same side before completing the remaining repetitions or time on the other side.
