Aqua power bag reverse lunges are a unilateral exercise that improves balance and coordination. When teaching the lunge, oftentimes beginners will find the reverse lunge simpler to perform than a forward lunge because as it’s easier to keep the front knee aligned over the front heel.

Teaching Points

  1. Start with the Aqua bag in the rack position.
  2. Keep your core braced and torso vertical throughout the movement.
  3. Stand with your feet hip width apart and lunge backward placing the ball of your foot on the floor.
  4. Your front shin should remain vertical over your front heel and your back knee bent at a 90-degree angle and close to the floor.
  5. Drive through the front heel, squeeze the gluteal muscles on the front leg and return to the starting position.
  6. Repeat the movement.

Common Problems & Solutions

Error: Pushing through the toes/ball of the foot.
Correction: Lift toes off the floor and drive down through the heels.
