Lunges – With Overhead Weight

Lunges with overhead weight

This is just like a regular lunge in terms of the technique (Standing straight, you then lunge forward with one leg – front leg is nearly at a 90 degree with knees just above the toes, while the knee on the leg that is behind is several inches off the ground – you then reverse the move and go back into a standing position – then lunge forward with the other leg) except you also hold a weight above your head. This is usually a weight-plate as you can hold it straight above you at shoulder width. The weight is to be maintained overhead for the entirety of the exercise.
