Reverse Lunge to Kickback

To do the Reverse Lunge to Kickback, start standing tall. Then lunge back with one leg, dropping the back knee toward the ground as you sit back in your front heel. Keep your chest up tall and think about keeping your front knee about over your ankle as you lunge back.

Then drive through your front heel to come back up to standing without putting the other foot down. As you stand and balance on that front leg, lift the leg you lunged back on up behind you, extending your hip as you squeeze your glute. Try not to lean way forward as you lift. Don’t focus so much on how high you lift, but on feeling your glute power the kickback.

Tap the toe down if needed and repeat the lunge on the same side. Beginners can tap the toe down even between the lunge and kickback to help with balance.
