Overview

The barbell reverse lunge is a more dynamic movement than the stationary lunge. It places a higher demand on the inner thigh muscles than the stationary lunge. The barbell reverse lunge can be performed at home or at the gym. If a barbell is not available dumbbells can be used. Keep your torso upright and maintain a tight core. Reverse lunges are a great way to add variety to your workout routine. After mastering the stationary and forward lunge progress to the reverse lunge.

Description

  • With the barbell on your upper back, step one foot backward about 18-24 inches.
  • Immediately bend the knees and descend onto the front leg, allowing the back knee to come close to the ground.
  • Keep the weight on the front heel and maintain a straight torso.
  • Push back up with the back foot and return to the standing position.

Mistakes

  • The heel of the front foot coming off the ground
  • Putting too much weight on the back leg, instead of keeping most of the weight on the front leg
  • Rounding the back
