How to Do Forward Lunge With Rotation Stretch

The forward lunge with rotation stretch 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 forward lunge with rotation stretch.

Beginning

Beginning Forward Lunge With Rotation Stretch

1. Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart is a good idea.

2. Hold a medicine ball in front of you with your elbows bent at about 90 degrees. If you're just getting started, you might want to do the move without the weights until your strength improves.
