What is a Curtsy Lunge?
The Curtsy Lunge is a great exercise to stabilize your hips. The movement is a variant of a standard lunge, but you hold your lower body in the position of a curtsy for additional glute strengthening.
How do you do a Curtsy Lunge?
Stand with your feet hip-distance apart and let your arms fall at your sides.
Draw a semicircle with your right foot, moving it clockwise until it crosses behind your left foot. Keep your right toe tucked and clasp your hands together at your heart.
Lunge down as deeply as possible, hovering your knee a couple of inches off the floor.
Slowly return to the standing curtsy position.
Repeat the lunge on the other side.
