Overview

The dumbbell lunge is a unilateral exercise that targets the glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps. To perform the dumbbell lunge, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand at your sides. Step forward with one leg and lower your body until your front knee is bent 90 degrees and your back knee is almost touching the floor. Keep your chest up and your core engaged. Push off of your front foot to return to the starting position. Repeat on the opposite leg. The dumbbell lunge can be performed for multiple sets and repetitions.
