How to Do Barbell Lunges

The barbell lunges should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the barbell lunges.

Beginning

Beginning Barbell Lunges

1. With the right foot front and the left leg back, take a split stance. Depending on your leg length, your feet should be roughly 2 to 3 feet apart.

2. If you feel shaky in the split stance, grab a wall or a chair for support. Make sure your torso is straight and you're standing on your rear toes before lunging.

Movement

Barbell Lunges Movement

1. Bend your knees and lower your body until your back knee is just a few inches above the ground.

2. The front thigh should be parallel to the floor at the bottom of the movement, and the back knee should point toward the floor. The weight should be distributed evenly between the two legs.

3. Push yourself back up, keeping your weight in the front foot's heel.

4. Before switching sides, repeat for all reps.
