#GymnasticsHowTo: The Perfect, Strong Lunge

Author: Shannon Miller

Ahhh the perfect, strong lunge.

The lunge is another basic, yet extremely important, skill in gymnastics. The lunge keeps you stable on landings, looks great for the judges, and also helps you learn bigger skills. However, all lunges are not equal. It has to be pretty as well as strong and secure. While this is often the finale of a skill, it’s also what can keep you on the beam after a wobble. A strong lunge can even help prevent that wobble in the first place!

In this Gymnastics How-To video, I’ll take you through the make up of the “perfect lunge”. We’ll talk about which muscles are critical and why your body position matters. This video will also help you in working your lunge at home or in the gym. Once you know what to do, it’s just a matter of practice, practice, practice until it becomes a very natural position for your body. Practice like you compete!

So, check out the video, and send me a pic of your awesome, perfect, strong lunge on my social media channels!
