You need this leg burning exercise in your life

Yes, I love lunges, squats, deadlifts, kettlebell swings, basically anything that hits the lower body and helps promote the glutes.  But sometimes it’s nice to throw in something a little different that puts some tension on the muscles and challenges the stabilizers.

This is an offset reverse lunge that transitions into a squat position.  It seems simple in theory, but this is a leg killer!

By holding the weight on one side, you get the added bonus of your nervous system having to work overtime to keep you balanced and strong.

This can also be done bodyweight with a similar impact and I would definitely suggest starting there!

You could add these into a circuit or even an every minute on the minute style of workout.  Just make sure you’re not completely exhausted, these are best done no later than the middle of you workout.  When you stay in a low position like this it can be very taxing on the body and form as always is essential.

I would also suggest playing the song Disco Inferno while performing these because……burn baby burn!

Have fun!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
