Do you feel like something is not quite right when you perform a lunge?
Despite it being a basic exercise, and a staple of preparing for hiking and climbing, it’s a move that can do more harm than good if it’s not used safely.
So in this blog post I’m providing you with some examples of how not to do the lunge as well as a philosophy that could change the way you move for the rest of your life.
The aim here is to eliminate knee, hip and ankle pain when hiking and to move more confident, both in your training, and in the mountains.
So let’s dive into this movement and go back to basics!
You’re undoubtedly familiar with the basic lunge and how it’s done, right?
I’m sure with a glance at the photo below you can immediately understand what to do.
But there’s so much more to the lunge than these photos show.
When I released version 1 of our online training programs in 2015, I only supplied photos and a few cues on how to perform the exercise – but I soon realised, photos just don’t cut it – they can’t possibly contain the necessary information that the average person needs to know in order to get the most out of this movement.
This is just a small step to learning how to move better. If you like this style of training, and you are willing to cast your ego aside and go back to basics in order to give yourself the best chance of reaching your goal, then download my sample program and try it out!
If you have questions, if you’re still not sure you’re doing it right and you want to catch up with me 1 on 1 for a skype consultation contact me – I’d love to share what I’ve learned to help you move better.
I’ll see you on the summit.
