Question - Lunges and Pain

by Lisa
(Denver, CO)


I have just started a Russian Kettlebell class. Part of the routine (after extensive warm ups) include lunges.

I am NOT using any weight at all with this exercise, but experience severe pain in my upper thighs. Imagine putting your hands at the top, inside of your thighs, and pushing straight down. Your hands naturally go down and outward in an arc. This is EXACTLY where the pain is.

I am unable to do lunges at all. What's the deal? Am I doomed to being a failure at lunges?
