When performing the lunge, be sure to drive your heel down on the front leg as you move forward and bring the back leg to the front (see video). Aim to keep your shoulders parallel to the floor at all times, and your lower ribs tucked down.

It is  important that your trunk doesn’t fall forward or back as you are progressing.
