Single leg stability is very important in many daily movements, not limited to walking or running. Weakness in your hips can compromise this stability and lead to a potential overuse injury in the future, which could limit your ability to perform activities you love!

 

These reverse lunges are important in emphasizing hip stability when stepping forward into a lunge cannot be completed without having your knee drop inward.

Step backwards onto the big toe and emphasize dropping your back knee instead of moving forward through the front leg. Try to keep your knee in line with your foot which should be facing straight forward (or with your toes turned out very slightly). Make sure you avoid letting your knee drop toward the middle of your body as well as letting your knee move in front of your big toe.
