Dumbbell Reverse Lunge from Deficit
- Step back from a box or step to get in the deepest possible squat position you can achieve without having your back round over (spinal flexion) or your pelvis tuck under (posterior pelvic tilt). You should be able to go significantly below parallel, likely fully ‘ass-to-grass’.
- Start the first work set with your weaker leg, rest, and then perform the same number of reps with your stronger leg.
- If you don't have a step or low box, use a treadmill as your elevation for the front foot. Set two heavy dumbbells on it to keep it from moving. Lay a yoga mat behind the treadmill. Have your back foot land just at the far side of the mat each time it goes to the floor.
