Dumbbell Lunges

This is an exercise for whole leg but mainly hamstring strengthening.


  1. Grasp a dumbbell in each hand.
  2. Stand with your feet about 8 inches apart, toes facing forward.
  3. Take a step forward (2-3 feet) keeping your abs drawn in and your upper body straight.
  4. Slowly lower one knee down as if kneeling while keeping your other knee bent at a 90 degree angle, do not let your knee touch the ground.
  5. Lower your body so that the rear knee is just above the floor and hold for a moment before returning to the starting position.
  6. Repeat on opposite side.


Ensure not maintain your front knee at a 90 degree angle, in order to prevent knee injury.
