Best Use For Improving Vertical Jump

The reverse lunge, like all lunge variations, is a great for strengthening the key muscles used for single leg jumping as well as improving knee, hip, and ankle stability.

Technique Tips

This exercise is performed in pretty much the same manner as the forward lunge except instead of stepping forward, you step backward. Again it is important to maintain an upright position with your chest out. Other key pointers are to make sure you keep the weight on your front foot, and don't let that front heel come off the ground.
