Some of my amazing clients are needing harder and harder activities to progress their strength at home. When there has been pelvic pain, shifting, what feels like instability or pubic symphysis pain, we avoid single leg asymmetric things like lunges. BUT, when it’s time to add in difficulty with a balance component, lunges are great and hit all lower extremity muscle groups. There are tons of variations on lunges so we only covered basic forward and backward lunges to get started with.
Basic, right? Stay on the train tracks, feel free to steady yourself on a counter or chair and don’t hesitate to start with a partial dip. There are ways to start gently and modify anything to ensure you feel confident progressing your strength, balance and leave you ready to face a new challenge!
