How to do Landmine Reverse Lunge

Landmine Reverse Lunge

Standing with a shoulder-width stance, hold the end of a bar attached to a landmine at your chest level. After taking a step backward, bend at your knees until the back knee just touches the ground. Stand up by driving your front foot so that you go back to the initial position.

LM Reverse Lunge Tips

  • Since you load the weight in front of the body, keep the bar from pulling you forward and changing the angle of the torso.
  • You can use it as a progression exercise and should be performed once you have the necessary core and hip stability. You may do it after mastering the foot elevated split squat, lateral lunge, single leg squat, and forward lunge.

Variation

The deficit variety is done in the same way as the basic landmine reverse lunge but with the front foot elevated.
