While in a standing position, place hands behind your head or on your hips. Take one step forward and lower your body until your front knee is at a 90 degree angle. Stop for 3 seconds and then push back to a standing position. You can do reps on one leg at a time or switch legs for each rep. Or, if you have adequate room, alternate legs in a walking lunge, moving forward instead of standing. Note: Be careful with your knee position – it should never go past your front foot (you should be able to see your front toes).
