Try this elevated short range reverse lunge to set a great foundation for your single leg training:

BENEFITS: This is a great way to build up to a more traditional full range slider reverse lunge. It can be more comfortable for anyone who has knee discomfort during lunges. This exercise targets your glute/hip and quad muscles. 

COACHING KEYS: Use a 4-6” box to elevate the lead leg. Avoid full extension of the elevated side knee. This keeps tension on the targeted muscles throughout the entire set (no rest :)). _______________________________________

HOW TO USE: Use this exercise to build better 1-leg strength, stability and endurance. Use this at the end of your lower body day for targeted overload/fatigue of the single leg. It will BURN 🔥 your biscuits! Shoot for 2-4 sets of 8-20 repetitions.
