Review and practice the Lunge and Squat exercises

Familiarize yourself with various LUNGE and SQUAT  exercises (with and without instability), experience the exercises, and recognize when you would coach these exercises (with whom and when in training).

Lunge Exercises:

The lunge movement pattern provides the foundation for walking, running, and climbing. Being a unilateral movement, it provides an excellent way to recognize imbalances in strength and mobility. Both hips contribute to controlled deceleration (eccentric) and acceleration (concentric) phases.

General form and cue reminders:

  • maintain an active plank
  • maintain a tall torso throughout the movement
  • level pelvis
  • near vertical shin angle
Squat Exercises:

Vertical moving plank – with maximal knee flexion.

General form and cue reminders:

  • maintain core stability
  • maintain neutral posture
  • keep torso tall
  • keep feet rooted into the ground
  • hips will open at the bottom (no valgus collapse)
  • on the return, the hips and shoulders move together.

After reviewing and practising these exercises, mark this task as complete, and move to the final task of completing a full (Hinge or Rotate) Peer Review (full rubric).
