    heels in side lunges

    Does it matter if the heel of my bent leg doesn't touch the ground during side lunges/side-to-side lunges? My heel raises every time I do these exercises. I thought it was normal until I paid more attention to the video from the library (heels touch the ground entirely).

    And how can I build up to it if I want to achieve the touching?

    Thanks!

    from my experience I just practiced and watched my form making sure it was flat on the ground but it could also mean that it requires a little more flexibility

      Maybe try to get off only as long as the heel remains on the ground, it will gradually improve your flexibility

        Animated pictures Fremen Thanks! It makes sense.

        Now that I think more about it, I remember how my heels were off the ground as well when I tried to squat to 90 degrees during the days when I was not good at the exercise. So it totally makes sense to proceed step by step in these lunging.

        Everyone I have seen does the deep side lunges with raised heels, so it never occurred to me one could or should do it with the heels flat.
