8 Reverse Lunge Variations [video included]

8 reverse lunge variations

Let us lunge.

I’ve seen these movements called different things throughout my years of training. Call them what you may, they’re all different versions of the same mother pattern: the reverse lunge.

This post is your prime time example of simple > fancy. Want to progress a movement? Give your body a little shock? A new stimulus? I give you eight examples:

[Sped up 1.5x] Reverse Lunge 8 Ways.

First up: Dual KB Reverse lunge.

Progress it via:

  • Adding ROM (from a deficit)
  • Do a curtsy lunge (change angle)
  • Hoist the KB’s up to front rack (change load position).
  • Same goes for the curtsy.
  • Add a deeper range of motion via a deficit or Change the load position.

These are outside of adding additional load, tempo changes or increased through sets and reps. And this is how I often progress or impose new stimulus inside my Built By Annie Programming. We change ONE factor: Load position, range of motion, angle of tension on muscles.

You might be surprised how different a movement can feel when you only alter an individual factor like these. Spread the word. Do the work.
