Have issues keeping form or even worse, pain with lunges?
Here is a quick breakdown to help:

1. Stop doing lunges!

2. Perform your upper body and core exercises from the “half kneel position.” This is the bottom position of a lunge. The most unstable/scary/painful place. Performing other exercises in this isometric lower body position will carry over to dynamic (moving/lunging) positions.

3. Use a “pattern assist” to help support weight and elicit proper form. TRX supported shown.

4. Use a Sled or Carry variation to do safe and limited range of motion conditioning (strength AND endurance are needed to make joints safe). A sled is a great supportive device. It gives you balance, supports body weight and helps keep core tight for proper mechanics.
