  • Nice video! Would you add the benefit of the lunges maybe below the names as they pop up? That’ll be so helpful to group them up into a routine! Thank you!

  • I did this whole routine 3 times in my hotel room. Awesome. Lower body is super sore. More please!
    Could you post a routine with lower leg variations on the floor?

  • Love these Cori! I am doing these tonight at the gym! Yay! One variation I didn’t see you do was lunge to the front, side,back, other side and then a squat. I do those sometimes with the TRX to add arm motion too. I don”t remember what it is called but you lunge in every direction and do a squat to complete the rep.

  • Love you guys. Please keep putting out great material. Michael says, “There is no right or wrong way…” Yeah there is. The right way is to SUBSCRIBE TO PREHAB GUYS. Then you know you’re on the right track, kids.

  • Dear,
    Thank you for yet another video. The turns you use. As well, the use of weights which cause instability in various directions become the more effective workout. Congratulations on your creativity.
    Big hug!

  • This is a great idea for a home workout, all variations of lunge bodyweight workout session, burn it!…thx Ashley and Brian! �� ��

  • Sir i am doing single leg press × 12 reps + 4 sets + 60 sec recover
    My question is if i am doing right leg press should i first finish all sets of right leg before moving to left leg

  • They all appeal to me, but as much as I like #14 and #15 I have to be sure I don’t crush my kneecaps (I guess I’ll be buying one of those foam floor pads). I’m going to add a few of these to my “bodyweight only” leg workout. I don’t do squats with weights anymore due to lower back compression. But I know you can get a killer leg workout with bodyweight only and a good routine. Thanks for the video.

  • You are calling a bunch of squat variations lunges incorrectly….. a lunge literally mean forward and back or back and forward,,,.. up and down is squatting.. as in a fencers lunge..

  • great work but if u have PFPS avoid FORWARD LUNGE due to compressive force knee joint and if u have hip OA avoid BACKWARD LUNGE what is your opinion dr MICHAEL

  • Like all your other “redefines”, this was a very inspiring and imaginative collection of lunges. Your on-camera and written comments are very helpful, but being a relative ‘newbie’, does your site (or can your site) talk about the equipment? What is that “boombox” contraption? How high should a “bench” rise? What are those sliding disks under your feet? And what’s the “handle” on that four-legged, furry apparatus after lunge No. 16?
    In all seriousness, it is very refreshing to find a site like yours thats not pushing a product, a course, or a lifestyle down my throat —and a simple discussion on equipment or creative alternatives other than soup cans would be most welcomed (—by me, at least.),
    (Please don’t send me to the library!)

  • is there a different muscle being focused on when doing the stationary alternating lunge compared to the curtsey lunge?
    and is there different muscles being involved?

  • Wow Cory. Those are a lot of variations. I loved the burpee variations too, why not make a playlist for variations of all exercises? You are a ��.

  • I have real trouble with TRX lunges. If I lose my balance, one foot is stuck in the strap. I have fallen over more than once. It’s pretty tricky. Other then holding on to something, I have no solution.
