Kettlebell Tactical Lunge

Posted by:

LungeThe Kettlebell Tactical Lunge has a lot going on but your hard work will pay back when you do this exercise. It not only helps to sculpt great legs but it works on your balance, co-ordination and flexibility at the same time.

To master this exercise properly, start slowly and with a light kettlebell. Get to grips with the movement first. Hold the kettlebell in your right hand and step your right leg back so your knee is bent at 90 degrees. Pass the kettlebell through the bent legs into your left hand and return to standing. Then do the same on the other side.

Keep both hips facing forward to maximize the hip opening benefits on the back leg and push back to standing from the front heel to fire up the glutes. Once you’ve got the movement pattern right, increase the weight and/or the reps and wait for your legs to tell you when to stop!
