Exercise of the Week: Reverse Lunges

The reverse lunge is one of those exercises that I have a huge Love/Hate relationship with. I LOVE them because they really shape the thigh and butt region.

But I HATE them because they are killer!

And when you add some dumbbells to them.....WHOA! Watch out!

Here is a quick video of the exercise. For this, just so the video wouldn't be too long, I am only showing you the reverse lunges on one side. You would repeat the exercise on the other side.

Some of the big things you want to make sure you watch out for while doing this exercise...

  1. Make sure to keep the front foot flat on the floor. Do not let the heel come up while you are stepping back or stepping forward to starting position.
  2. Keep your chest tall and proud. Meaning, do not lean over as you are taking a step back.
  3. Make sure to stand up tall after coming forward every time.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!! :)
