Posterior Lunge – Anti-rotation

  • HOW:โ€ฏ Begin by placing a strap looped through one shoulder as shown in the video. Starting in a standing position, take a moderate length step backwards and perform a lunge movement. Pause at the bottom, then return to starting position. Repeat and then perform on the other side.
  • FEEL: โ€ฏYou should feel at least 80% of your weight is on the front leg. This is the leg that will be doing most of the work, with your quads and glutes getting a workout. You may also feel your core work with this variation.
  • COMPENSATION:โ€ฏ Do not take too short or too long of a step, maintain space in between your feet, you donโ€™t have to step back as if your feet are exactly in line with one another. Donโ€™t lose balance or put too much weight on the back leg. Avoid rotating towards the anchor, resist the pull to keep your hips facing forward throughout this motion.
