Strong Back – Strong Legs w/ Reverse Lunge Rows …
This exercise is a great way to work several muscles at once. Reverse lunges are not only great for your glutes but also your hamstrings, quads and even calf muscles. When you do a row the primary muscles that you are working are your back muscles. Finally, because of the cross body movement you are also challenging you core and working on balance and coordination. Beginners be sure you can complete the reverse lunge and row separately before putting the moves together.
Do it Right:
- Begin standing w/ feet hips distance apart, holding an exercise band (that is secured at approximately chest height) w/ palms facing each other and arms extended forward
- Pull exercise band back with your right hand while simultaneously stepping your left foot back bending both knees to lower body down as far as possible or until left knee is close to but not touching the floor
- Exhale, extend both knees & step left foot back while extending right arm to return to starting position
- Switch & repeat the movement on the other side to complete 1 rep
