In this video blog, I have my son, John, demonstrate how to do the clock lunge exercise. This exercise is an ideal warm up for tennis players, Nordic Walkers and other active athletes. Make it part of your warmup program!
Clock Lunge Exercise
Hi, I’m Margaret at MelioGuide, and I have my son John demonstrating clock lunges.
So, clock lunges starting clockwise. 12:00, 1:30, 3:00, he’s into 4:30, he’s gonna go back 6:00, and then switching legs to 6:00, continuing around the clock. Now, notice a pattern than happens, is the back foot and knee points to the front foot whenever it’s behind. When doing lateral lunge, feet are parallel to each other. Again, back foot and knee, pointing to the front heel.
Here we go.
And, then taking the clock lunge around counterclockwise, starting back, oh he forgot his 1:30. There we go. And, then back foot and knee pointing towards the front heel, so that there’s always good alignment of the knee.
There’s no twisting, no rotation around the knee. This is a great drill to do for anybody who plays tennis. It’s a good warm up drill once you’re familiar with it. And, it will help keep you agile and accustomed to doing multidirectional lunges.
So, that’s it for clock lunges.
