Running lunge

The running lunge is a dynamic exercise that targets the lower body. It combines elements of a reverse lunge with a step-up, in that the front leg fully extends and the rear leg flexes up in front of the body. It targets a wide range of muscles in the lower body, including the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. It can be performed for time or reps in any lower-body workout, or in a fat-loss or athleticism-focused circuit.


  1. Strengthens the quads, glutes, hamstrings, and adductors
  2. Increases strength and stability in the core and hips
  3. Cardiovascular challenge that also builds explosiveness, balance, and coordination
  4. Requires no equipment
