Audio for Dumbbell Reverse Lunge with Rotation Video
Next exercise is a Reverse Lunge with a Rotation. It’s a good exercise to work the lunge pattern, the lunge movement, and also to get some rotation in there as well, which helps to activate the core muscles.
This is how we do it. Grab your dumbbells. You’re going to hold your dumbbells together with your elbows nice and even, nice and tight. From here, step back into the reverse lunge position, rotate across the forward leg, back to the front, and stand. Let’s do the other side: Reverse lunge, rotate across the forward leg, to the front, and stand. We keep alternating sides.
You’ll notice my back knee doesn’t rest on the floor; it just touches down, or kisses down, lightly. There’s a few stages to this exercise: You have the lunge part, the rotation, and the standing. Lunge, rotation, stand. Keep the elbows in nice and tight.
That’s the Reverse Lunge with a Rotation. Alternating sides, doing 20 repetitions in total.
