Lunge Walk
From: FM 7-22 October 2012
Purpose: This exercise develops the leg power needed to move both vertically and horizontally (Figure 9-47).
Starting Position: Straddle stance.

Check Points:
  • Incorporate arm swing with the arm opposite the forward leg raised parallel to the ground.
  • Keep the back straight and the head up.
  • Do not allow the knee of the lead leg to move forward of the toes of the forward foot.
Precaution: Do not allow the knee of the rear leg to forcefully contact the ground.
