Trish: Lunges always give me knee pain or just don’t feel right. How can I do lunges safely or correctly? 

Megan: The basic lunge is a lower body exercise that primarily targets the muscles of the legs and glutes to include the quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves. A lunge is both a concentric and eccentric movement, which means the muscles both shorten and lengthen. A basic lunge begins by standing feet shoulder width apart and stepping one leg forward while lowering the body ideally until that stepping leg is in 90 degree bent position. The chest should be kept up and the length of the step/stride forward should be so that you can see your toe when you look down. Therefore, if your knee is over your toe, form is compromised. Then you step the leg back to starting position and repeat. This can be down with body weight, holding dumbbells, or holding a barbell over the shoulders.
