SIDE LUNGE – Stand with your feet hip width apart. Step out to your right with your right leg keeping your body tall and your abdominals engaged. Land with your heel first followed by your forefoot. Flex your right knee and hip to lower your body. Your right knee and hip should be at a 90-degree angle keeping your toes behind your knees. Your left leg should be at a slight angle. To return to standing, extend your right hip and knee until they are straight and return to the starting position. Repeat on your left side with your left leg to complete one repetition.
