Want toned legs and bum in one exercise?


If you’re new to lunges or looking to add a basic exercise to your fitness routine, then consider the Reverse Lunge. Compared to a basic lunge, this exercise places less stress on the knees, while still strengthening and toning your legs and bum simultaneously.
Why not use Reverse Lunges in your programme, and watch the shape of your legs and bum change before your eyes!

Reverse Lunges are a fantastic option to include among your leg exercises.
They may be a real challenge, but they also certainly are a girl’s best friend! This simple exercise does wonders for shaping and toning those bum and thigh areas, even without weights!

The Reverse Lunge can be a ‘go to’ exercise, if you are short on space, equipment, or even time!

1. To begin, stand tall and take a controlled lunge (large step) backward with your left foot.
2. Lower your hips so that your right thigh (front leg) becomes parallel to the floor and your right knee is positioned directly over your ankle. Keep your left knee bent at a 90-degree angle and pointing toward the floor. Your left heel should be lifted.
3. When your left knee is almost touching the floor, hold. Then, slowly push with your left foot to raise your pelvis up a bit, then straighten your knees and return your left leg back to starting position next to your right leg.
4. This completes one rep. Complete 10 reps before repeating the movement and the repetitions on your right side.
