Reverse Lunge

 

The reverse lunge is a single leg squatting exercise which targets a large percentage of your lower body muscles. Weights can be held in each hand to increase the challenge of this exercise.


Performance Tips


  • Start in the standing position

  • Take a big step back behind you with one leg

  • Drop straight down into the bottom of a lunge position

  • Your front heel should remain grounded and your shin tall

  • Your center of gravity should drop straight down, not back

  • Allow your arms to swing forwards (bodyweight variation)

  • Hold the bottom position for a few seconds to increase difficulty

  • Drive back up to the standing position using your front leg.

  • Keep your knees tracking in-line with your feet
