Lateral Lunges

The Lateral Lunge improves hip mobility and lower body flexibility.  It will directly prepare your lower body for heavier strength exercises and correlate to improved performance.  Your range of motion will significantly improve over time when performing lateral lunges on a consistent basis (3x per week).
