The Reverse Lunge is a bodyweight exercise that is a variation of the forward lunge. It is a fantastic exercise for strengthening the thighs, hamstrings, glutes, stabilising muscles and the core. You don’t need a lot of room to do this exercise and it can be performed with many variations.
You can perform it using just your body weight, with dumbbells, a barbell and kettlebells. It can be done using one leg at a time sing a predetermined number of repetitions or in an alternating manner. This exercise can be performed on the spot or in a reverse walking motion. The reverse lunge is also a great training aid to train any imbalances in terms of strength, balance and muscle mass by equalling training one leg at a time.
