Reverse Lunge Form Tips Switch Up Your Step Distance To emphasize glute and hamstring involvement take a longer step backwards. To emphasize quadriceps involvement take a shorter step backwards. Regardless of what stance tweaks you make, aim to perform full range-of-motion reps with knees pointing in the same direction as your toes.
How to Do a Reverse Lunge. A. Stand with feet together and hands clasped in front of chest. B. Take a big step backward with the right foot, keeping hips square to the front and pelvis neutral. Lower until both legs are bent at 90-degree angles, keeping chest tall and core engaged.
Keep your head facing forward, with your chin tilted up. Additionally, don’t lock your knees. Tip: Reverse lunges work the leg that’s stationary, which will be your front leg. That means you’ll be working your right leg when you step backwards with your left.
“The reverse lunge is probably the best overall single-leg exercise you can do.” Form notes: Ensure the toes and knee of your back leg are facing the same direction throughout the entire move. Keep your elbows high and in front of you the entire time, with your hands close together by your neck. At this point, the kettle-bells should be resting comfortably on your upper arms. Stand up tall and set your feet at a stance closer than shoulder width, with your feet pointing forward.
Keep chest tall and core engaged. Find “center” and bring both feet together (with weight evenly distributed) between each rep. Don’ts: Take a small step back. (If either or both of your knees is forced to bend at an angle of less than 90 degrees, you need to step farther.).
The reverse lunge is just like the normal lung, except as its name implies you take a step backward rather than forward. The effects on the muscles are the same. But, the reverse lunge places less stress on your knees because the knees cannot extend beyond the toes as easily.
Here’s how to perfect your form: Keep your upper body straight, with your shoulders back and relaxed and chin up (pick a point to stare at in front of you so you don’t keep looking down). Always engage your core. Step forward with one leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Do keep your feet hip-width apart, to avoid walking a tightrope and wobbling to one side. Do engage your core and keep your back straight for stability during the entire movement.
Do use your arms for extra balance by holding them out to your sides if needed. Do keep neck. The reverse lunge is a unilateral exercise than can be used to build strength, muscle hypertrophy, and enhance movement mechanics for strength, power, and fitness athletes.
