Barbell Lunge - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Set a barbell on a rack at a height that’s slightly lower than your shoulders. Load it with weights according to your preference.

Step 2

Step under the barbell and place the handle across the back of your shoulders.

Step 3

Hold the barbell with both hands on your sides.

Step 4

Lift the barbell off the rack by pushing it up with your legs as you straighten your torso.

Step 5

Step away from the rack and stand up straight with your feet shoulder-width away from each other. Your toes must be pointing out, head up, and back straight. This is your starting position.

Step 6

Step one foot forward and bend the knee of your leg to shift your weight onto it. Your back leg must be extended. Inhale as you do this. Don’t let your knee go beyond your toe as you descend.

Step 7

Pause for a moment then push yourself back to starting position with your forward leg.

Step 8

Complete your repetitions then switch legs and repeat.
