Thinking anatomically, Standard Lunges should predominately targeted Hamstrings/Glutes and Reverse Lunges Should target Quads, right? So, why am I getting more work on my quads than hamstrings with standard lunges? At first I thought it was because of fatigue because I was trying to lunge after squatting.
But I experimented and found the same problem “fresh” versus post-squat. Always fearful of my knees (I was a catcher for a very long time) I make sure that I have good form by making sure that my front knee stays over my ankle and that i drop my ass straight down to the ground, not leaning forward.
Any suggestions on where to check my form to make sure it’s correct so that I get the proper hit on my hammies (and so I don’t pop a my quad. tendon)?
I’ve never really paid minute attention, but could i perhaps not be keeping my front foot totally flat?
