Instructions: How To

Balance Trainer Single Leg TRX Lunges is a more complex variation on Bulgarian Split Squats. Like other Bulgarian Split Squats, this exercise primarily focuses on your quadriceps. By standing on a Balance Trainer, as well as attaching on leg to the TRX straps, you can add significantly more instability to this movement which can help you improve balance and stability.

  1. Stand on one foot on the Balance Trainer dome with the foot of the opposite leg resting in the suspension trainer straps.
  2. Flex the hip, knee and ankle of the standing leg and allow the back leg to simultaneously extend behind.
  3. Press back up to the starting position.
  4. Perform the desired number of reps on one side, then repeat on the other side.
  5. Maintain good, upright posture and a braced core throughout the exercise.

Common Mistakes

  • Too Soon

    This is a very complex and challenging lunge variation. The added instability from both the Balance Trainer and the TRX straps greatly increases your risk of injury. Make sure you’ve mastered simpler variations before giving this exercise a shot.
