I have been sharing my “Top 5 Exercises” for certain muscles groups with you on this blog. Today, I am switching things up a bit. We will go over my favorite leg exercises to do with a particular piece of workout equipment. These movements will teach you how to lunge without knee pain.
Lunges are one that exercise that cause people with knee issues pain. However, if you do lunges with sliders, they are much safer. Today’s workout will include several different lunge variations. I will teach you how to lunge without knee pain using sliders!
Sliding lunges only require you to bend one knee. This will feel more comfortable to you if you suffer from knee pain. Bending just one knee allows you to focus more deeply on the muscles you are supposed to be feeling.
The sliding motion also feels more controlled. Having the ability to choose how far your leg slides back prevents you from any missteps that may hurt your knees. You’ll see what I mean in the workout below!
If you don’t have sliders, you can purchase some in the MFit Amazon Store. You can also get creative with the equipment you use. If you are working out on carpet, paper plates are the perfect slider swap. If you are working out on hardwood floor or a tiled surface, towels work perfectly.
