Front foot elevated reverse lunges are my favorite lunge variation!

They’re incredible at building leg strength; especially useful for taller, longer limbed people, who mechanically have trouble keeping a vertical torso when squatting.

If you’re an athlete, who needs to do any amount of running, sprinting and/or agility, then lunges are really important for building strength in a split stance as well as when in a position of single leg support.

Love having the front foot elevated so I can get maximum range of motion with each repetition.

Principles of technique:

  • Vertical torso
  • Straight back
  • Vertical front shin
  • Weight on your heels
  • Knee over toe
  • Lightly touch back knee to ground on each rep

A truly great addition to your program to increase your leg strength.

4 x 8/side is a favorite of mine; try it out!

Enjoy!
