The lunge requires good deceleration strength. The negative movement has to be decelerated and turned into a concentric contraction to return back to the starting position. The Emphasis on decelerating the movement strengthens your muscles and joints in a way that will help to prevent injuries and improve performance.
The side lunge enables you to train the lateral change of direction.
The 3-spot lunges increase strength and balance in all three planes of movement.
The reaching lunges enhance the activity of the hips and low back, due to the forward inclination of the trunk, and should therefore be considered as Hybrid focus leg exercises.
Finally the compound lunges combine the lunge with an upper body strength exercise to develop total body strength, stability and power.
The lunge is a beginner single-leg exercise that teaches the athlete to decelerate movements.
The side lunge is a intermediate level lower body exercise. The side lunge targets the adductor muscles of the hip more compared to a regular lunge.
The 3-spot lunge increases lower body strength and balance in all three planes of motion. It is suitable for intermediate and advanced fitness levels.
Hybrid lunges are an excellent way to develop total body strength and power. A high demand is placed on the core to stabilise the movement and transfer the power generated by the lower body to the upper body.
