How To Do Lunges – Complete Form Guide & Video Tutorial

If you want to know how to do lunges, then you have come to the right place. We have a full video tutorial and exercise guide right here for you, showing you exactly how to do lunges with perfect form!

Lunges are a great lower body exercise, working Hamstrings, Quads, Calves, and Core. It is perfect for including bodyweight lunges in a cardio workout to burn calories or for using as a muscle gain exercise, by using dumbbells.

Lunges can be done anywhere and in a variety of ways.

You can do alternating lunges, as we show you in the video below, or you can do static lunges (one leg at a time), or even plyometric lunges if you are an advanced trainer and feel it is safe on your joints.

Take a look at our video tutorial below where I guide you through the exercise and outline the main technique points of how to do lunges.

If you need something to print off and take to the gym as a reminder, the step-by-step exercise technique is further down this page.

How to Do lunges – Step-by-step technique

    • Step 1: Stand upright with a strong posture, feet shoulder width apart and your core tight.
    • Step 2: Breathing in, take a long step forward, plant your foot and bend your knees to lower yourself towards the floor. Keep your body upright and your front knee back behind your toe.
    • Step 3: Breathing out, press up through your heel and move back to the start point, standing with an upright posture.
    • Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the other leg.
    • Step 5: Continue to alternate legs until you have completed the prescribed number of reps on each leg.

** Pro Tip #1: We recommend starting 3 sets of 15-20 reps. **
