How to do the Airborne Lunge

In Bodyweight Mastery by admin2 Comments

This video describes the basics of how to do the airborne lunge.

I first read about this exercise in Pavel’s The Naked Warrior, but never really got into it, favoring the pistol squat instead.

But recently I was reintroduced to this exercise by Max Shank and have been using is fairly frequently since that time.

In an upcoming video I’ll be talking about the similarities and differences between the pistol and airborne lunge.


  1. Thank you for your instructional video sharing this excellent exercise. It’s exciting to see someone else running with Max’s recommendation.

    I would caution that you have too much hinging performing this exercise. Your lumbar is rounding with the KB especially. Remember, this is a lower push, a single leg squat variation. We want to remain similarly upright as in a regular squat.
