The dumbbell lunge works the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes. Follow the steps below to correctly perform this workout.
- Begin with feet together, slightly inward, and shoulder width.
- Take a step forward with one leg. Ensure that the step is not too big. Large steps increase the risk of injury to your back and legs. Bend the opposite leg.
- Push off with the first leg to again be in a standing position.
This exercise can be performed one leg at a time, or you can choose to alternate legs.
