Instructions for Dumbbell Lunge
To perform a set of dumbbell lunge:
Stand with 2 dumbbells at your sides in a neutral grip. Your trunk
should be in a neutral position.
Eccentric (Lowering) Motion
Take a large step forward with your left leg and absorb
the momentum into this leg by bending the knee and lowering your body under control. Keep lowering
until both knees are bent to almost 90 degrees and your right knee is just off the ground.
Pause at the bottom position for a 2 sec count while maintining
whole body tension and the alignment of your trunk.
Concentric (Upward) Motion
Drive into the ground with your left foot to explosively
propulse your body back to the standing position. Your trunk should move as a unit with no part lagging
behind any other. Remember to breathe normally throughout the entire movement.
Repeat steps 1 through 4 until you have completed the desired number
of dumbbell lunge repetitions for each side before resting.
This completes one set of dumbbell lunge.
