Best Use For Improving Vertical Jump

The lunge is a fantastic exercise for strengthening all the key muscles used for single leg jumping.

Technique Tips

Some key points to remember when performing the lunge are to keep your back upright and straight. You should go as deep as your mobility allows. The deeper you go the more recruitment you get from the glutes and hamstrings. Lunges are also excellent for building knee stability and reducing knee pain by strengthening the VMO (vastus medialis oblique). On top of all the benefits already mentioned this exercise also helps improve posture.
