For this part of your holiday training do 3 lunges with each leg. Take a long stride step and focus on lowering “through” the front heel. Your back leg is for balance and the front leg is for work. Lower the torso straight down between the two feet in the long stride position. Focus also on maintaining a long spine. You can stay stationary or walk the lunges around your workout area, alternating for 3 reps with each leg.
Avoid the risk of injury. Don't "lock-out" the joint with hyperextension and keep the front knee over the ankle, with your body weight toward your heel, not sliding forward to the front of your foot. Shifting forward transfers your body weight through your knee joint, instead of keeping it on your leg muscles.
