Okay this exercise is the lunge, the classic lunge exercise. So I see many, many people doing this incorrectly and this is the a great exercise if done well to focus on the glutes, the hamstrings, a lot quadriceps and little bit of back. But really great exercise for the glutes. So what I want you to do is this, there is two ways to do this sprint. Intermediate, I would want you to just take a small step, but the more flexible you are and the longer you have done these, you can take a lot longer step. A longer step puts a little bit more force in the glute, but also it's little bit more risky because that puts your hamstring in a little bit of this hip flexor at risk. So again a long step if you can, balance is an issue with some people as you are seeing me. Then the next movement is straight down. How I see people doing this one incorrectly as they move forward like this. Again you see how much force that puts on the knee. So let's do this correctly, a little big step straight down and then step like this, a big step, straight down just like that.
