Muscles Worked: Quads, Hips, Glutes

Starting Stance: Stand with legs shoulder width apart, hands on hips, with toes facing forward.

Action: Step forwards with one foot in a long stride. Make sure your feet are in line and pointing straight forwards. Keep your back upright in good posture as you slowly bend and lower the back knee towards the floor, raising the heel off the floor. At the same time bend the front knee, making sure it doesn't go past your toes. Don't let the back knee touch the floor before returning to the starting position.

TIPS: If you feel pain when while doing this exercise, try taking smaller steps as you lunge. Once you have the basics down, try doing the walking lunge or reverse lunges (stepping back instead of forward).
