Star Lunge

Target muscles:  Gluteal muscles and ankle stabilizers

Action desired:  Activate the gluteal muscles that help stabilize the knee and ankle, as well as the hip and lower back.  This exercise stimulates the muscles that are supposed to stabilize these joints so that the body does not use smaller muscles not designed to hold up the involved joints.

Position:  Standing on one leg.

Exercise movements:  Do a squat on one leg, reaching with the free leg as far as you can with stability, touching the ground as if you stepping on an egg, trying not to break it.  You will reach in a star pattern.  Try to keep your balance on the non-reaching leg.  Do not let the hips unlevel.
