Hi, it's Faith Dey, and I'm at Princeton Club West in Madison, Wisconsin, and we're talking about how to do a lunge with a rear leg raise. So usually when you're doing something like that, you're using a prop. You're either going to use a bench, you're going to use a half ball, maybe your staircase, and what you're going to do is take one leg and prop it behind you so you have a little balance challenge. Now the number one thing I tell clients is to watch your front knee. When you lower yourself down you don't want that front knee to be pushed over your toes. So position your legs a little farther out than you normally think you should but when you lower down, your knee will stay in position just above your ankle, and it won't get pushed over your toes because that's a little bit too much pressure on the knee joint. So check your alignment as best you can, make sure that knee stays directly over your ankle as you lower your body down. If you need more tips, just visit me at
