A New Twist on the Classic Lunge
Apr 4, 2012
If they’re not already a regular part of your regular workout routine, traditional lunges can offer an excellent alternative to other leg exercises. Because lunges attack your quads, glutes and calves, adding three sets to your next workout can help you target those more difficult areas. However, if you’re already spending time with lunges, but haven’t seen the results you’re looking for, try flipping your approach.
Reverse lunges address the same muscles groups as traditional lunges, but force them to work in different ways. Additionally, supporting your body weight through the reverse step creates more work for your hamstrings and quads, pushing your upper-leg workout to the next level.
To perform reverse lunges, simply extend your right leg back from the standing position and bend at the left knee. Return to the upright position by bring your left foot back to meet your right. Alternate legs and repeat!
