Squats and Lunges – The Good and the Bad

So, besides pushups and chinups, that I wrote about two days ago, what are some other useful exercises that you can do without needing the equipment of a health club? Squats and lunges are some good ones. When I took the conditioning course last fall, we did a lot of lunges.

WebMD suggests squats and lunges in their series of Effective Exercises.

I like these photos with right way and the wrong way. It’s good to keep in mind that you always want the front knee directly above the foot, not extended forward.
