How To Do The Dreaded Lunges In The Safest Way Possible

(C) Natasha Nesic,
  1. Put your hands on your hips. Look down at your feet.
  2. Ask yourself if they’re hip-width. This is safe for your knees and helps with balance.
  3. Shift your weight into your back leg and butt. Again, this is for knee and hip safety.
  4. Ask yourself if you can lower yourself one half-inch (or one centimeter) in this position.
