There is something about Lunges that I really really don’t like, not sure what it is but what I do know is that it is one of the best leg exercises out there. When doing lunges make sure that your feet are stable on the floor and that the knees aren’t wobbling (if that’s a word). When the knees are wobbling it means that you have a higher risk of getting injured.
Yes, working out and especially lifting weights is all about being careful, you have to have proper form and you have to know what you are doing or else you are just an injury away. If that means that you have to cut back on the amount of weight you lift then so be it. Ego training is not worth the injury! Keep it real people and leave your ego at the door!
So back to lunges, ugh. I do lunges every week because I feel that they need to be improved on, not the body weight lunges but the barbell lunges. I can’t go heavy because I feel that my stance isn’t stable enough and I am not taking any risks!! Also I probably need to work on strengthening my core more to be more stable. It will be done!
