The static lunge is a powerful exercise to engage your quads and gluteal muscles. It isn’t too far from a forward lunge :) The key difference in the static lunge is that you hold your position. Instead of stepping forward to perform your lunge, stand with one foot forward and the other back, making a triangle with your legs. Without moving your feet, lower your rear leg until your knee almost touches the floor while bending your front leg. Repeat with the other side.
