Lunges


#1

Two questions:

1) Would you consider Lunges to be a Compound lift?

2) When I do alternating BB lunges, my lower back feels REALLY worked out too. Do you think it's normal?


#2

My opinion: yes to both questions.


#3

YES
YES


#4

Yes and Yes. I switched to DB lunges, my back doesnt feel it at all anymore.


#5

Yep absolutely.

If you focus on keeping your upper body as upright as possible, it won't hit your lower back as hard.
