How to do Lunge Rotation Stretch

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Easy

Impact Level: Low

Target Body Parts: glutes, quadriceps


Start standing up with your feet at hip-width, and your hands down by your sides. Take a long step forward with your right foot. As your front foot makes contact with the floor, bend at both knees to lower yourself down into the lunge position. At the bottom of the lunge, your knees should both be bent to approximately 90 degrees. Reach down with both hands so your fingertips are touching the floor. Keeping the left hand on the floor, reach straight up and behind you with the right arm, opening the chest. Return your right hand to join the left with fingertips on the floor.

From the bottom position, push up and backward using your front foot with enough energy so that you can step the front foot back to join side by side with the rear foot. Repeat on the other side. Make sure you complete an even number of repetitions on each leg during the time for the exercise.

Don’t let the heel of the front foot raise up.
