The Reverse Lunge
Lunges are a popular exercise to strengthen the quadriceps, the glutes and the hamstrings. Reverse lunges are useful for working the same muscle groups as the forward lunge, but with the added advantage of the backwards momentum keeping the ideal positioning of the weight in the heel with the knee above the ankle.
Start by standing straight and engage your core. Lift your left foot and step backwards. Bend your right knee to form a 90-degree angle between your thigh and calf while lowering your left knee toward the floor. Push yourself upward with your thigh muscles and return back to the starting position. Once you have mastered the reverse lunge technique you can perform the reverse lunge with added dumbbell weights.
