Objective

The 3-spot reaching lunge increases lower extremity strength and balance in three planes of motion.

Compared to the 3-spot lunge, the 3-spot reaching lunge gets the gluteus maximus (main hip extensor), the low back muscles and the adductor magnus (the great adductor muscle and synergist in extending the hip) even firing more.

A single-leg exercise that teaches the athlete to decelerate movements. This is excellent for injury prevention and promotes braking and changing of direction.
