Reverse Lunge with Reachback to shape your legs

The Reverse Lunge with Reachback

Reverse Lunge

Stand tall, arms at your sides. Lunge back with your right leg and lower your body until your left knee is bent 90 degrees. As you do, swing both arms overhead and to the left.  Do the same thing with your other side. You can do 2 repetitions of 12.

Important: you should not allow your knee to touch the floor, you might get injured if you do.

To increase the effectiveness of this exercise do 2 rounds, rest 10 to 15 seconds between each move and 30 seconds between rounds. If you still feel loose, then add another round. Keep your back straight so you don’t force your lower back.

Tips: To burn fat fast add 5 lb weights to both of your hands and do one round of 10 repetitions. Do a second round but instead of using 5 lb weights use 8 lb or 10 lb.
