Just starting to use lunges as
a part of leg training.
However i have a slight stability problem. (A dendency to fall over to one side or / and keeping my legs still.
There is a lot of info about this on the
nett, but i am not shure how to understand the info.
Seems like lunges are used to test
A training buddy says he have heard that it could be a sign of week gluteus medius.
The stability problem is in fact worse with out dumbells !
However i have seen others also have this problem. So it can’t be uncomon.
Found this on a runners page :
The lunge test assesses hip and trunk mobility and stability, quadriceps flexibility, and ankle and knee stability. It also places the body in a position that focuses on the stresses similar to rotational, decelerating and lateral type movements. In addition, the athlete’s lower extremities are placed in a scissor position that challenges the body’s trunk and extremities to resist rotation and maintain proper alignment.
Should i just go ahead and train with lunges ? or do i have to strengthen som
smaller and perhaps, ignored muscles ?
