Description / Instruction:
To perform the reverse lunge stand upright with your feet hip width apart and your hands on your hips. You may also hold a pair of dumbbells. Take a large step backwards and bend both knees until both legs form a 90 degree angle. Your back knee must not touch the floor. Pause and return to the start position by contracting your hamstring and glute muscles. The reverse lunge develops the hamstring muscles and the gluteus maximus.
