Transitional Lunges

Sports, recreation, and life share many common themes. One, in particular, is transitional in nature. For instance, when it comes to running faster, it requires a transition from quick feet to stride length and frequency. Or, transitioning a resistance – such as a light weight – between upper and lower extremities.

Transitional Lunge:

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart: Take an oversized, left step forward into a deeper lunge position – making sure that the knee on the lunge leg does NOT go past the toes. Your right knee will be about 3-4 inches above the ground. Place your left elbow on the inside against the left knee and the left wrist adjacent to the left ankle. Your right hand will be close to the left hand for balance. Pause, then drop the right knee to the ground and stand up. Repeat with opposite leg.

Remember, you should always consult your physician before beginning any exercise, diet, or nutritional supplementation program.
