Knee Hug with Lunge

• Standing, raise one knee to chest
• Grab bent knee with both hands and hug knee to chest
• Hold for one count then step bent leg forward into lunge position
• Keep front knee behind toes
• Lower back knee one to two inches above ground
• Drive off front leg and bring opposite leg up and hug knee to chest
• Repeat 4-5 hugs for each leg

Coaching Point: Step as high as possible to get as much extension on the back leg as you can. You may need to shorten your step into the lunge position. If you start reaching too far, you won’t be able to drive off that front leg.
