Barbell walking lunge

The barbell walking lunge tests your ability to maintain balance while challenging the quads, glutes, and hamstrings as well as the core muscles. Using a barbell allows you to overload the exercise. It can be performed for moderate reps, such as 8-15 per set or across the gym, or for higher reps as a conditioning and mental toughness challenge.


  1. Serious challenge to all lower-body muscles
  2. Shorter steps will target the quads more, larger steps will target the glutes more
  3. Helps improve hip flexibility, core stability, and cardiovascular conditioning
  4. Great accessory movement for squats
