Side Lunges

Side Lunges – Helps develop strength and flexibility in the hips, as well as the ability to load (store energy) onto each leg.

-Start with feet together standing tall

-Take a big step laterally to one side, keeping your toes pointed straight ahead.

-Keep your chest up, and sink your butt down into your hip and bend at the knee

-Your knee should be more overtop your shoe vs. underneath your hip (this takes tension off the knee)

-Your other leg should be straight with that foot still completely on the ground

-Return to starting position

-Try and increase your range of motion down into the hip each rep
