Front foot elevated reverse lunges are my favorite lunge variation!
They’re incredible at building leg strength; especially useful for taller, longer limbed people, who mechanically have trouble keeping a vertical torso when squatting.
If you’re an athlete, who needs to do any amount of running, sprinting and/or agility, then lunges are really important for building strength in a split stance as well as when in a position of single leg support.
Love having the front foot elevated so I can get maximum range of motion with each repetition.
Principles of technique:
- Vertical torso
- Straight back
- Vertical front shin
- Weight on your heels
- Knee over toe
- Lightly touch back knee to ground on each rep
A truly great addition to your program to increase your leg strength.
4 x 8/side is a favorite of mine; try it out!
