I’ve got a question about the walking lunge.
Aim - I’m using this exercise to improve my hamstring strength (which will improve my strength base to improve my sprinting) and also to get some hypertrophy.
Should I be using heavy weights for low reps and high sets? Or should I be using lighter weights and focus on performing a really explosive lunge, as if it were almost a plyometric/jumping exercise?
Also, i’m performing them whilst on tip-toes so that i get some calf work as well.
Before you ask or suggest, I’m also deadlifting, squatting and doing RDLs. It’s just that I quite like this exercise so want to make sure I’m doing it effectively.
Thanks for your time.
