Don't Cheat On Your Lunges

Over the past years, we have witnessed one very common mistake people make with their lunges, especially when they start to get tired. What this mistake does, is take away all of the potential benefit of strength gain in your quad. MTNTOUGH Coach Jimmy has developed a simple solution to the issue by doing your lunges against a post. All of us here at MTNTOUGH have only been doing these new lunges in our workouts, and the benefits have been immeasurable.


MTNTOUGH believes that mental toughness is just as important as physical strength and that the strongest muscle in the human body is the one between your ears. With a coaching staff comprised of former Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and renowned physical trainers—the workouts aren’t easy. The goal is to prepare clients for both the unthinkable and the everyday—to have the mental capacity and physical stamina to self-rescue in an emergency, or grind through a 12-hour workday and still play with the kids after dinner. Ara Megerdichian, MTNTOUGH coach and former U.S. Army officer and Ranger, believes the best way to harden the mind is by reaching and exceeding physical boundaries, by taking challenges once considered impossible and making them attainable and repeatable.
