Reverse Lunge & Twist

Step 1

Begin with both feet planted on the floor shoulder-width apart and arms bent in front of your chest. This is your starting position. Inhale and brace your core. Take a big step backwards with your right foot. As you plant your right foot on the floor, bend both knees to approximately 90-degrees, ensuring that your weight is evenly distributed between both legs. When done correctly, your front knee will be aligned with your ankle and your back knee will be hovering just off the floor.

Step 2

Exhale and while maintaining a proud chest, rotate your upper body approximately 90-degrees to your left. Slowly rotate back to face forward, extend both knees and transfer your weight completely onto your left foot as you step your right foot forward to return to the starting position. You should feel tension in your core and glutes and quads throughout this movement. Continue alternating between sides for the specified number of repetitions.
