How to Do Forward Lunge With Dumbbell Tricep Extension

Each exercise 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 this exercise.

Beginning

Maintain good posture throughout the exercise with shoulder blades back and down, good stability through the belly, and neutral spine angles.

Activate the core by drawing in the belly button towards the spine and contract the pelvic floor by tightening the same muscles used to stop the flow of urine.
