Stationary Lunge

What is an stationary lunge?

In this video I’ll be demonstrating and explaining the “Stationary Lunge” exercise. This exercise is perfect for targeting and strengthening your lower body muscles, especially your glutes, quadriceps, & hamstrings.

How do you do stationary lunges?

To perform a stationary lunge, start by standing up straight with your feet hip-width apart. Take a step forward one foot so that when you lower your body down your knee does not cross beyond your front toe. Lower your body until your front thigh is parallel to the floor and your left knee is almost touching the ground. Keep your torso upright and your core engaged throughout the movement. Then, push through your right heel to return to the starting position with feet apart. Repeat the movement on one side for the number of reps you are wanting to do then repeat on the other side.

What is the difference between stationary lunges and walking lunges or forward lunges?

It’s important to note that stationary lunges are not the same as walking lunges or traditional lunges. In walking lunges, you step forward and alternate between legs, in traditional lunges you either move forward or back keeping one foot stationary and returning to a feet together standing position while stationary lunges are performed in place and your feet should not move during the exercise until you have completed the prescribed amount of reps.

What muscles are worked in a stationary lunge?

The stationary lunge exercise is highly effective in focusing and reinforcing your lower body muscles, specifically your glutes, quadriceps, and hamstrings.

Finally, stationary lunges can be an effective exercise for building balance, strength and endurance in your lower body muscles. However, like any exercise, it’s important to perform them with proper form and gradually increase the intensity over time.

How to increase the Intensity of the Stationary Lunge

Once you are able to perform stationary lunges with relative ease, it is important to increase the intensity in order to maintain the progress you have made. One of the easiest ways to increase the intensity of the stationary lunge is by holding a set of dumbbells in your hands. This will increase the resistance that the muscles in your lower body must work against. You’ll be amazed at how much this simple maneuver can change your workout!
