Superset 1, Exercise 1: Alternating Reverse Lunge
Perform this exercise with a pair of medium- to heavy-weight dumbbells.
- Stand with feet together. Take a controlled lunge (or large step) backward with your left foot.
- Lower your hips so that your right thigh (front leg) becomes parallel to the floor and your right knee is positioned directly over your ankle. Keep your left knee bent at a 90-degree angle and pointing toward the floor. Your left heel should be lifted.
- Step the left foot in, and lunge back with the right foot.
- Complete eight to 10 reps on each leg.
