Barbell Lunge for Women
- Hold a bar across your upper back with an overhand grip.
- Step forward with your left leg and slowly lower your body until your front knee is bent at least 90 degrees. Pause, then push yourself to the starting position as quickly as you can. Complete the prescribed number of repetitions with your left foot forward, then do the same number with your right foot in front of your left.
Tip When doing the barbell lunge, visualize lowering your body straight down, not forward and down.
