How to Barbell Reverse Lunge
Exercise Families: Lunge
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Stand with the feet hip-width apart, position a barbell at the peak of the shoulder blades, spine and head in good posture, shoulder blades pulled back, toes pointing straight ahead.
Step back with the right leg into a reverse lunge position by pushing the hips back and down. Maintain alignment between the right knee and the right foot. Pause briefly, push through the right hip to propel the body to the starting position.
Repeat the movement on the left side, step back with the left leg into a reverse lunge position by pushing the hips back and down. Maintain alignment between the left knee and the left foot. Hold briefly, push through the arch of your right foot to drive the body to the standing position.
Allow the trunk to angle forward approximately 20° as you step back into the lowest part of the lunge position. Keep the abs contracted throughout the movement to stabilize the spine. Repeat the movement for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
You should feel this working the glutes, quads, hamstrings, hips, and core muscles.
