The safest and most effective variation of lunging is the reverse lunge.   When you reverse your lunge, the effects on the muscles are the same, but less stress is placed on the knees because they cannot extend beyond the toes.  And by taking a step backwards instead of forwards, it is easier to maintain balance and keep your weight primarily centered up on your forward leg.

In this video Tyler demonstrates how to properly perform a reverse lunge.  Incorporate reverse lunges into your exercise routine to build stronger, more powerful legs.
