April 28, 2019

Lunges will improve your lower-body strength, balance and flexibility—and watch your distance and accuracy numbers soar. Here are three types that are sure to help your golf game.

1. Forward Lunge: Set your feet hip-width apart and take a healthy step forward. Get deep enough for your thigh and shin to form a 90-degree angle. Return to standing and switch legs. Do 10 reps each.

Forward lunges are arguably the most common lunges.

2. Lateral Lunge: Widen out your feet and stand tall. Shift your weight over and squat down into one leg. Keep the other leg straight with your foot planted. Rise back up and repeat to the other side.

3. Curtsy Lunge: Stand normally and tighten your core. Step your right leg behind your left. Keep your weight centered over your forward foot as you lower your hips. Power back up and switch legs.
