      is this the same as farmer's walk? if no, whats the difference? (you know aside of moving after each one)

        doesn't farmers walk have weights in both hands? Offset lunges only have weight in one hand (to offset the weight) and work the sides of the leg better; you can offset to either side for different muscle groups, but offsetting to the side you're lunging with will be hard on the knees.

          when people say lunges, they mean grabbing weights and lunging forwards(moving) not doing them idling in a spot

            You can always do stationary stepping lunge squats with similar benefits.

        The elevated back foot in the Bulgarian makes it more quad dominant. I think both are equally physically hard but the Bulgarian requires less thought to do correctly vs a stationary lunge.

        I can load up more weight on the bulgarians because they're more stable. Also I depending on how far my front foot is and how much I lean I can control whether it's more of a quad dominant lift or a posterior chain hinge.

      Gravity can only pull you down so quickly.
      Relying on lunging to evade locks you in until you complete the frames.
      This is easily punished by more skilled players.

      >Do you do lunges?
      YES BUT I KEEP MY SPINE STRAIGHT AND TWIST TORSo ON LUNGED LEG AND LOOK BEHIND ME WITH LUNGED LEG AND EXTENDED THORACIC - no weight is necessary, it's counterproductive and wrong actually
      >pussy
      can u hold lunge without dropping ur knee to ground? for how long?
      weight is harmful here, also walking out the lunge, walking lunges - awsome, stepping back not so awsome

      >WEIGHT, YOU MUST HOLD WEIGHT AND U MUST CURL UR SPINE INTO PRETEZEL, OTHERWISE IT'S JUST NOT COOL
      how about no 😀

    What is the point of lunges, when squats target all those muscles?
    I'm being genuine with my question, btw, I am a tourist

      Here are just a few reasons
      1 Limits loading the back while loading the legs which can be helpful for injuries or preventing crossover effects on other lifts.

      2 Unilateral movement is much more similar to many athletic movements.

      3 Your inside quad, the teardrop, VMO, has a much greater stabilizing role. Really one of the best ways to get a good teardrop shape.

      4 Finally if you're always doing highly stable bilateral movements like squats the outside quad can become so strong it begins to pull your patellar tendon out of alignment. Lunging motions are prehab/rehab.

      5. variations of lunges are probably the only lower body lift you can do with minimal equipment that's worthwhile to do during travel/basic gym/no gym. A dumbbell squat with two hotel 60lb dbs (the max they have) is barely a workout for someone who BB squats 405. But lunging with 120lbs is challenging for high rep sets. Even bodyweight lunges on a beach can maintain strength.

        Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) is the syndrome that this causes and it hurts like a SON of a b***h. When the patellar tendon is pulled out of alignment the patella (knee cap) is repositioned to grind bone on bone with your femur and it is excruciating

          It's annoying once it develops because you often then need to do reverse lunges to rehab it because by that point the imbalance is so bad that forward lunges will aggravate it.

          Definitely worth prehabing.

          That's interesting, and scary.
          Do you know of other movements that we're better off doing as prehab, because the usual lifting movement might do damage if you don't?

            Not that guy but:
            Wrist curls and rotations to build that solid grip so you won't have to worry about shit breaking in your wrists, some elavated calf raises to protect your ankles for absolute minimum.

    I am always lunging when I need to walk somewhere, and I mean really lunging with deep stretch at the bottom. People look at me like I am moronic when I am lunging from the grocery store to the parking lot. But I just tell them "how do you do? This is for a research project".

    serious question: what's a good weight standard for reverse lunges? I'm up to carrying two 32.5lb dumbbells for four sets of ten per leg, started a couple months ago.
