Make sure you are doing it right!
When completing a workout, it is important that you perform exercises correctly to ensure you can maximise the impact it will have on your body and fitness.
The lunge is a powerful lower body exercise that is easy to learn and safe to do. Perfect for a home gym, you can do lunges with minimal equipment, or even use your body weight.
They are very effective in targeting your glutes and quads. Lunges also work your calves, hamstrings and core.
For beginners its best to perform them next to something stable to balance on if required and for those who are more advance start to morph the movement into walking lunges, jumping lunges or add weights.

Common Mistake: Do not lunge forward in front of the body, this is called lunging on a tightrope. It is best to always lunge outside the width of your hip to ensure you maintain balance, this is called lunging on train tracks.
