Reverse Lunge with Rear Leg Raise

Exercise Instructions

Stand with your feet together. Step backward, and bend both knees to drop directly between your feet to a lunge position.
Push up and forward through your heels, coming up and balancing on your front leg, then lift and squeeze your rear leg back and up.
Step back again with the rear leg, returning to the lunge position. Once all repetition are complete switch legs and repeat.

Exercise Purpose

This bodyweight move challenges multiple thigh and hip muscles simultaneously, similar to a traditional lunge. However the added rear leg raise increases the work done by the glute muscles, toning and lifting the glute muscles. This dynamic lunge also adds a challenge to your balance and control by making you step backwards and balance on one leg. The balance required for this exercise also incorporates your core muscles to help tone the abdominals, obliques, and lower back.

That's a great way to start the day! Be sure to stretch after you workout; the Deep Glute Stretch is especially good after a lower body routine.
