Kettlebell lunges are a unilateral exercise that improves balance and coordination. The kettlebell rack lunge is even more challenging due to the imbalance of holding the weight on one side of the body and the body having to stabilize the uneven load.

Teaching Points

  1. Start with the kettlebell in the racked position.
  2. Lunge forward and place your heel on the floor.
  3. Your front shin should be vertical and your back knee bent at a 90 degree angle.
  4. Drive through the front heel, squeeze the gluteal muscles and return to the starting position.
