The most simple pose of the lunge sequence, in this position you want to have your hips square pushing forwards and down at the same time while trying to keep your back from arching (also known as anterior pelvic tilt). Doing this means that more of the stretch moves into the hip flexor. This pose is one of the training pre-requisites of both front splits and backbends such as bridge, kneeling backbend and cobra.
