Primary Muscle Groups: Gluteus Medius & Maximus, Quadriceps (Rectus Femoris, Vastus Lateralus, Vastus Medialus, Vastus Medialus Oliquus) Hamstrings (Biceps Femoris, Semimembranuous & Semitendinuous), the Hip Flexors, and the muscles of the torso.
Technique Ques: The athlete begins the exercise by standing upright, feet shoulder width apart. The athlete proceeds by stepping into a forward lunge allowing their back knee to rest on the ground. The athlete can support themselves by placing their hand on the ground. After balance is achieved, the athlete rotates their torso externally and stretches their arm of the forward leg upwards. The athlete attempts to rotate their torso as far as possible while maintaining a neutral hip position and stability in the forward lenged knee and ankle.
Options for Progression: An athlete can progress the exercise by increasing the length of the lunge, shortening rest durations between sets, increasing the number of sets completed, or by performing the movement in a free-standing posture (the athlete does not support their body weight by placing either their knee or hand on the ground). Progressions should only be made once correct technique is achieved.
