Kinesis Lunge is a functional exercise based on the standing and locomotion pillars of natural movement. These pillars allow you to control your body’s center of mass on a linear displace and provide the foundation for ground-based force production. The Kinesis Lunge strengthens your legs and promotes hip and trunk stabilization.
- Kinesis Lunge is a functional exercise based on the standing and locomotion pillars of natural movement.
- It strengthens your legs; mainly, your quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes.
- Promotes hip and trunk stabilization.
- By performing it in an alternated way, this exercise activates all trunk muscles and trains balance.
- You’ll start by standing, facing away from the Kinesis One.
- Take the cable grips and keep your hands close to your trunk and arms flexed.
- Stabilize your scapula by pulling your elbows down. Don’t forget to keep your arms flexed.
- Activate your core.

- Try to stabilize your hip and trunk.
- Step back putting more strength on the heel of your front foot and shift your weight to your back-leg.
- As you reach the start position, switch legs and repeat.
- Better muscular symmetry.
- This exercise strengthens your quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes.
- It activates the hip stabilization muscles and core muscles.
