Triathlon Training Exercise: Reverse Lunge with Knee Drive

This was Coach Amber’s 3rd Week being featured in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. This week Amber demonstrates the Reverse Lunge with Knee Drive. This exercise is especially for the running portion of the Triathlon Training.

How to do a Reverse Lunge with Knee Drive:

You can do this exercise with or without dumbells/weights.

With feet hip width apart, step back with left knee balancing on your Right Knee. Drive your leg pushing your weight into your Right foot as you stand up and drive the left leg forward.

You really want to work on stability during this exercise as good balance is essential while running.

Beginners:
Do 1-2 sets of 8 to 10 repetitions on each leg.

Advanced:
Do 3-4 sets of 12 to 14 repetitions on each leg.
