The dumbbell step-down reverse lunge is an exercise targeting the lower body, particularly the glutes and hamstrings. The front foot is slightly elevated during this movement, making the subsequent step-down more pronounced and difficult. These are usually performed for time or for relatively high reps, such as 10 reps or more per side.
Extra glute emphasis over regular reverse lunges
Builds and strengthens the quads, glutes, and hamstrings
Single-leg work can help combat strength imbalances between sides
