This exercise often falls under the radar. The dynamic “step through” component of the walking lunge allows for a complete single leg hip extension in motion that other lifts don’t provide. When performing walking lunges, remember to avoid pausing between steps (don’t plant your foot down in the middle to meet the other foot between strides!) unless you have to catch your balance. To emphasize the posterior chain’s involvement, feel free to lean forward by about 10 degrees in order to create more tension — just make sure to keep the front heel on the ground as you do it.
