Exercise 6 — Barbell Reverse Lunges
Protocol: 12 reps/leg
Target Muscle(s): Butt, Hamstrings, Quads, Core
(1) Stand tall with a barbell loaded on your back. Tighten your core, draw your shoulders back, and stagger your feet so that your left leg is in front of your right. Balance is KEY.
(2) Take a step backwards with your right foot and lunge down until your knee is slightly above the floor and your left quad is parallel to the ground.
(3) Powerfully press up through your heel and glutes, and explosively ascend back up to starting position. Repeat a full set with your right side and then switch to the left.
