Lateral Lunge

Use the lateral lunge to help you improve your lateral strength, speed and power. The frontal plane (side to side) is often undertrained by athletes....that's a big problem because many athletic movements require you to move laterally or side-to-side...

Straight-line speed is important but so is lateral speed and agility in sports. The athlete has to move quickly and efficiently from linear to lateral positions (and back again) many times during a practice or game.

If you have tight hips and adductors, a good dynamic flexibility exercise for you would be the lateral lunge.
