Personal Trainer Yana Ibrahim from San Francisco’s Xodus Fitness demonstrates the Bodyweight Reverse Curtsey Lunge.
Instructions: Start with the feet shoulder width apart.
Take a large step backwards and diagonal and bend the front and back legs descending towards the ground.
Be sure to control your descent toward the ground and be very careful not to bang the Knee of the back leg into the floor.
Most of your body’s weight should be centered over the hips, however your front leg will likely bear a little bit more of the weight.
Note: Some athletes may experience tightness of the hip flexors preventing them from descending deep. Also, beginners may have a hard time figuring out foot placement and step distance.
Benefits: The Benefits of the reverse curtsey lunge over the normal lunge is that the athlete doesn’t have the same forward directional force deceleration requirements at the knee joint.
The other benefit is it’s ability to target the Glutes a little more than the normal lunge.
The reverse lunge can also be done very easily using suspension trainer.
Strengthens: Legs and Hips, Glutes.
