How to Do a Reverse Lunge Exercise Correctly

The reverse lunge is another great leg strengthening exercise that targets the hamstrings, quads, glutes, and calves. You can add resistance by holding a pair of dumbbells in your hands.


  • Activates and works your core, hamstrings, and glutes.
  • Helps improve stability in the lower body
  • Places less pressure on the joints
  • Increase flexibility and range of motion

How to Do It

  1. Stand as tall as you can with your feet spread shoulder-width apart. Look straight ahead, and keep your torso as upright as possible for the entire exercise with your lower back slightly arched.
  2. Keeping your abs engaged, take a step backward about 2-3 feet straight behind you. Raise your back heel to be on your toes while making sure your weight is on the front heel.
  3. Lower your body by bending your back knee until your front thigh is parallel to the floor. 3. Go back to the starting position and repeat 10 times before switching to the other side.


  • Your front knee should not pass your toes. 
  • The back knee should be at a 90-degree angle.
