Weekly Wednesday Workout: Reverse Lunge with Rear Leg Raise

Today we are working those buns honey!!


I actually really like this move! I have never seen the both of these moves combined before and I really like it! Now, don’t get me wrong the burn is for serious but its a great way to target the tooshie! There is a great element of balance too! If you have bad knees do be careful, but it is an awesome all around butt and leg workout. (It will get the heart rate going too, those lunges have a sneaky way of doing that!)

Have you ever tried a Reverse Lunge with Rear Leg Raises…together?

This is an awesome move! This is especially good to incorporate to your half marathon training!

Thanks! I think this is great, my trainer said the same thing. Stick with the lunges and leg work for cross training!

Oh yeah! These are serious burners and I love them. When you progress – add weights to really spike it up!!

Nellie August 10, 2014 - 5:46 pm

weights like an overhead press or a bicep curl, or just holding them? So many ideas!

Love lunges and these definitely are some serious ones to do to get your tooshie in shape 🙂

Nellie August 10, 2014 - 5:45 pm

oh yes Janine!

I love this move – anything to work my butt makes me happy!!!

Nellie August 12, 2014 - 7:38 pm

amen to that Kim!

I’ve never tried these, but I need to give them a try. I’m trying to tone my body and these look like they would be great for your backside. Hopefully, I’m strong enough to do a couple of reps 🙂

Nellie August 10, 2014 - 5:45 pm

I bet you are strong enough!! When I do them I feel it all throughout!

Every now and then my right knee does act up – from my years as a school photographer – lugging tons of equipment into schools. Ah, youth. I’d probably try this slowly, though.

Nellie August 10, 2014 - 5:44 pm

Definitely don’t do any lunges!! They are not knee friendly.

Leslie August 6, 2014 - 10:46 pm

This is one of the moves in my boot camp workout that I both love and hate. I don’t mind the leg lifts so much (I was blessed with this XL tushie to make it strong, no?), but I can’t stand lunges. I just can’t seem to keep my balance.

BTW, I incorporated last week’s up-down push ups into my workout on Friday…totally brutal…but a fun change of pace!

Nellie August 10, 2014 - 5:33 pm

nice!! I love that you are incorporating the workouts!! Lunges are not so bad for me, Mountain climbers on the other hand? #nothankyou

Tara Newman August 7, 2014 - 6:24 pm

This looks super effective!! I am starting my strength training routine in earnest again now that I am feeling better. I will have to add this one. It is also a good one to add to our family workout routines.

Nellie August 10, 2014 - 5:31 pm

Love that I could help with ideas!! When I do this one I feel it all the way through my rear end!!
