Wednesday workout - the reverse lunge

Lunge 1

Lunge 2

Today’s #WednesdayWorkout is with Bootcamp Pilates Instructor, Lucy Thirsk as she takes us through steps to perform a reverse lunge.

The reverse lunge exercise is fantastic for building strength and toning the legs and bottom. Performing the reverse lunge means you place less stress on the knees.

  1. Stand in the start position standing tall. Take a large, controlled step backward with your left foot.
  2. Lower your hips so that your right thigh becomes parallel to the floor with your right knee positioned directly over your ankle. Your left knee should be bent at a 90-degree angle.
  3. Return to standing position by pressing your right heel into the floor and bringing your left leg forward to complete one rep.
  4. Continue alternating legs for 20 reps in total.
