A great one for hamstring strength and pelvic control. I used to do this in college all the time as a dance major, so I enjoy doing it turned out. The hardest set is the last one, the back-pedal. You will want to bring the knee towards your armpit as it bends, but it's important to keep the knee in place as it bends, to isolate and work the hamstring. Keep the hips stacked and stable, as well as the shoulders.
I tend to enjoy giving myself a little stretch at the end...
I am obsessed with yoga clothes! And I love them because you can also wear them as bathing suit. Would people be interested in a post or blog about some of my favorite pieces? These bottoms are @k.deer and the top is @onzie ... Let me know!
#FitOver55#FitAt59 - Some of leg day from this morn. I finished with these lunge variations and that single leg Smith Machine squat that opens up the hips too. TRY TO GET TO END TO SEE THAT Today was core, cardio, legs, triceps, glutes.
The reverse lunges can be done with or without step AND with or without kickback. ALSO HARD TO SEE BUT I'M STEPPING BACK BOTH FAR & CLOSER. Far works glutes more. PUSH THRU THE HEEL TO ENGAGE! You also see me do all right leg & then left versus alternating legs. Mix it up!
I'm using light to no weight here because I did after my heavier leg exercises.
BTW, I'm a super super super early workout person and... MY TOP WAS INSIDE OUT MY WHOLE WORKOUT Didn't notice until halfway through!
