Exercise of the Week: Dumbbell Reverse Lunge to 1-leg RDL
Written on July 26, 2014 at 6:28 am, by Eric Cressey
If there's one thing I've learned to love in working with older athletes and lifters, it's "joint-friendly" exercises. Obviously, these drills lower the injury risk, but taking it a step further, these are options that allow us to create a great training effect with minimal loading. This exercise of the week is a perfect example - and it also affords some great benefits in terms of building mobility.
Keep in mind that this isn't a "beginner exercise." Rather, you need to be proficient with both the reverse lunge and 1-leg RDL components before you attempt to combine them.
My apologies in advance for how sore this will make you!
