Check Your Health: Lunge to the side or with a curtsy

Side Lunge_Curtsy LungeThumbnail
You've heard of lunges, but have you tried side or curtsy lunges? Dr. Brett McIff along with Mary Nickles go through the exercise and what you should do when trying it at home.

  • For a curtsy lunge, stand with your feet shoulder width apart.
  • Shifting the weight to one side, bend the supporting knee as you bring the opposite leg behind and as far to the weight supporting side as you can.
  • Return to the start position and repeat on the other side.
  • For a side lunge, step towards a 2 o'clock position and return to the starting position.
