3 lunge mistakes

3 Lunge Mistakes (Video Episode Below)

I cringe when I’m at the gym when I see well meaning folks attempting to “get back in shape” without having a good foundation of quality movement.

The lunge exercise is a classic and fantastic exercise but it is also the most poorly executed…especially for newbies to the movement.

In this episode of Core Wellness TV, I go over the 3 biggest lunge mistakes I see that lead to overload and damage to the joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles of the knees, hips, and low back.

  1.   “The Flare”
  2.   “The Dive”
  3.   “The Round”

Enjoy and please share!


  1. Hi Dr. Steve, I’m a healthy Male looking for muscle hypertrophy gains. What weightlifting exercises would you recommend (kettlebells, front squat, deadlifts, Bulgarian split squats)? And also, are pull-ups and dips good exercises as well? And finally, if we go raw foods, how do we get enough protein to build muscle?
