Reverse Lunge to Kickback
Getting bored of regular lunges and want to mix them up. Try the reverse lunge to kickback. This is a great variation to add to your leg workouts days. Take a look below to see our video instruction.
- Start standing tall
- Lunge back with one leg, dropping the back knee toward the ground as you sit back in your front heel
- Drive through your front heel to come back up to standing without putting the other foot down
- As you stand and balance on the front leg, lift the leg you lunged back on up behind you, extending your hip as you squeeze your glute
- Try not to lean way forward as you lift. Don’t focus so much on how high you lift, but on feeling your glute power the kickback
- Tap the toe down if needed and repeat the lunge on the same side
- You can tap the toe down even between the lunge and kickback to help with balance
- Complete three to four sets of 10-15 reps on each leg

- Keep switching legs
