Gosh - I am ashamed to admit to how LITTLE weight I can manage when doing lunges. This coming from a guy who regularly squats with 300+. All these years I have ignored lunges as a “girlie” exercise but recently decided to give them a try and I can report that I am feeling new muscles in my butt and elsewhere that I haven’t felt before.
Along with dumbbell step-ups I am finding that I am really enjoying new variety in my leg training. And there are some interesting variations I plan to try with lunges once I gain some respectable strength in the “static lunge”.
If you haven’t given lunges and step-ups a go - I would highly recommend incorporating them into your leg routine!
