🔥LUNGES: WHERE TO PLACE THE LOAD ON YOUR FEET
🚨 Knee pain when doing lunges.. Are you paying attention to your knees?
Sure, we all know we shouldn’t let out knees bend inwards, but out attention shouldn’t be channeled towards out knees, but rather our feet.
Quite in fact, the outcome is dicted by the way we place the load on our feet.
✅ Creating an arch and giving it an external rotation cue, will make sure that we won’t let knees bend inwards. This will align the knees with our feet, making us perform the exercise well.
❌ On the other hand (foot?) we can see how placing the weight inwards will cause our knees to collapse inwards as well due to the internal rotation cue implemented at the bottom, which gives makes everything else collapse inward. This can cause chronic knee pain.
