Forward Lunge FMB

You will need the Functional Movement Brace on your back and the PVC pipe in place

Begin with your feet shoulder width apart and your hands on your hips. Draw your belly button in and step forward about 1.5x your normal step length. Inhale while you keep both feet facing forward and bend both knees. As your legs bend, you should be going straight down. Continue bending your knees until you’re 2 inches from the ground. Exhale as you step back up to the starting position.

Make sure you:

1)           Keep your belly button drawn in

2)           Keep your shoulders back and down

3)           When stepping forward land with your heel first (on the forward foot)

4)           Breath in on the way down; breath out on the way up

5)           Don’t let your torso twist

*Perform 3 sets of 10 repetitions per side using only your bodyweight*
