Reverse Kettlebell Lunges

Looking to give yourself more of an edge in the boxing ring? Try turning a classic move into a super move with the use of kettlebells as added weights! By using kettlebells, it allows for a more comfortable grip- plus added weight- to your exercise to help build strength and include a new form of cardio.

To get you started on your kettlebell journey here is a Super Move that'll help spice up Leg Day at the gym: Reverse Kettlebell Lunges!

This move works the Glutes, Hamstrings, Quads, and some Shoulder stamina. Not only that, it helps build grip strength too! The tricky move helps promote the growth of lean muscle and helps improve endurance.

To help you master this super move, here are some tips for proper form:

  1. Stand straight with your feet together and a kettlebell in your left hand.

  2. Lunge backward with your right leg, bending both knees to 90 degrees and gently touching your right knee to the ground.

  3. Return to the starting position and repeat.

  4. Keep the kettlebell close by your side throughout. Remember to keep your back straight and eyes straight ahead to ensure a clean movement.

If this move is too difficult there are many variations with the movement of the kettlebell. Also, holding two kettlebells at your sides while performing a reverse lunge can help with stability and take the stress off of one of your sides.

Remember consistency is key to building strength and making this move easier!
