Coach's Tips

It's a workout that can intensively target your hip muscles!

How to Cross Lunge

Starting Position

1. Stand with feet hip-width apart and arms at your sides.

2. Step one foot back so that feet are in a wide lunge position. The front knee should be bent at a 90-degree angle and the back knee should almost be touching the ground.

3. Keep your chest lifted and your gaze forward.

Proper Form

1. Push off your front foot to return to the starting position.

2. Step the other foot back and repeat the movement on the opposite side.

Breathing Technique

1. When you step back, inhale deeply.

2. As you push off your front foot to return to the starting position, exhale.


1. Make sure your front knee does not go beyond your toes as you lower into the lunge.

2. Keep your core engaged and your torso upright throughout the movement.

3. If you feel any strain in your knees, stop the exercise and consult a trainer or physical therapist.
