How to Dumbbell Burnout Lunge
Primary Muscles: Legs
Exercise Families: Lunge
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Stand in good posture with your feet shoulder-width apart holding a weight in your hands.
Step forward into a lunge, push through your front hip to return to a standing position, keeping feet shoulder-width apart. Repeat to the opposite side, and return to the starting position.
Step to one side and lower your hips to the floor by squatting back and down with the stepping leg, keeping the other leg straight.
Return to the starting position by pushing up with your bent leg. Repeat on the opposite side, and return to the starting position.
Reverse the lunge movement, stepping back with your foot into a lunge, and contract your back glute. Return to the starting position, and repeat on the opposite side. Continue performing the burnout lunges for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
You should feel this working your glutes, hamstrings, and quads.
