Lunges are a great bodyweight exercise that you can do anywhere.
Both forward lunges and reverse lunges have many things in common, and they also offer unique benefits.
Both the forward and reverse lunges target the glutes, hamstrings, quads and calves, and core. Forward and reverse lunges are unilateral exercises, which means they work each leg separately. Focusing on building single-leg strength, as well as overall balance, stability, and coordination. These are all important for daily life. However, each variation of lunges works these muscles in slightly different ways and favors certain muscles over others.
