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!
