How to do Front Rack Walking Lunge

Front Rack Walking Lunge

Start the exercise by holding a barbell (weighing about 130-180 lbs) or a pair of dumbbells/kettlebells (weighing about 30-50 lbs) using a clean grip in the front rack position, with the bells resting on the meaty part of your shoulders.

Tips

  • Try doing the exercise using a pair of kettlebells, as they are easier to pick up and hold at your sides than the barbell or a pair of dumbbells.
  • Keep your torso straight, with the elbows held high in front of you throughout the movement.
