-Revisiting the TRX Single-Leg Lunge!-
A while back, I blogged about an exercise commonly known as a “suspended single-leg lunge” or “TRX single-leg lunge.” You can access that post by clicking HERE (will open in a new window).
The other day, I included these in my workout. I have had several clients perform this movement, and have always just referred to it as a “suspended single-leg lunge with reach.” I incorporate a contralateral floor reach and arm motions to mimic running mechanics.
Know what? It may not be super-important, but from now on, i’m not referring to this exercise as a “lunge.” Why? The act of lunging requires you to step into the “lunge” position. To me, these aren’t lunges…they are single-leg squats! Furthermore, my variation is a squat/deadlift hybrid b/c I include a hinging action at the hips with the arm reach.
So, without further ado…here’s the Suspended SL Squat + Contra Reach!
