Exercise of the Week: Basic Lunges, Avoiding Knee Injuries

I promised a couple weeks ago that I would feature the proper form for lunges.  I named lunges as one of my top 5 favorite exercises for tightening and toning the butt.  So if you are still working on getting a shapely bottom for summer-time, there is still time. The routine I wrote  2 weeks ago, which can be done at home included lunges.  Lunges are a wonderful execise even withtout weights. 

The reason I wanted to feature the lunge all by itself,  is because so many people find it strenuous on their knees.  They either complain that it bothers their knees or their back.  I believe it is actualy incorrect form that is the culprit, not the actual exercise.  With proper technique, lunges are fantastic for firming up your rump.  I think they are a perfect exercise.  See what you think and if this video helps you work through any discomfort.  Let me know if you have any issues.
