300 Club Lunge of the Week – Reverse Walking Lunges

Fitness, Fitness - Lower Body Exercises May 1, 2011

Happy May Day!  We are heading into the home stretch of our challenge.  If you have been with us from the beginning, you have completed 3000 lunges and have 900 to go.  If that’s you, please let me know in the comment section.  I would love to give you a virtual pat on the back!!

I hope everyone enjoyed last week’s “back to basics” lunges.  I added some weights to some of my static lunges and my quads are still screaming!  I definitely need some extra time on the foam roller this week.

This week’s lunge is extra challenging because you will be moving backwards.  Be sure that you choose an area that you know will be clear.  If you work out at a gym, you might want to go to an empty basketball court, racquetball court or group fitness room to avoid running into people or equipment.  If you are a stay-at-home mom, tell the kids to watch out!

Watch the video below and get started.  Let me know how it goes!

    LOL, these are going to test my balance for sure! I think I better get started. 🙂

    Reverse lunges are tough! They will certainly work everyone doing the challenge.

    I think I may be one of the from-the-beginning folks: 3,220 lunges as of today (did 150 reverse walking).

    Thanks again for getting us all moving with this! I'm convinced this challenge was part of what got me ready to run a half marathon last weekend. Working the lunges into my training regimen definitely made my legs stronger & ready to endure 13 miles. If not for the challenge, I probably wouldn't have done much strength training on my legs, assuming I needed to "save" them for all the running.
