    Do you do Reverse lunge?

    I do normal lunge as part of my program. Is there any use to add reverse lunge?

    I know lot of PTs get clients to do both. I see they target the same muscles and dont know if there is any value in adding reverse lunge.

    Yes, I do them and love them.

    The movement is a lot like the squat and it emphasizes the quads more than regular lunges.

    I dont do them as my normal routine wears my legs down enough I couldnt possibly do anymore, I stick to a simple leg routine and rarely even do regular lunges. If I was going to add them in, they would take the place or reg lunges and I would alternate them between workouts. I really dont see the benefit of doing them reg and rev in the same workout. In fact, if you can do both in the same workout you probably arent hitting enough weight or volume on squats, ext's or curls/sl deads IMO.

    They are awesome. I get a good stretch from them and they make you perform the reps a bit slower.

    They seem to hit your stabilizers a little differently and use a little less hams for me. I like to switch it up with these every few leg days. Give it a try sometime they are surely worth it.
    I am inspired by Zyzz. Did I deletes?

    the hell?

    i was under the impression they work the posterier chain....

    can anyone check up on this?

    EDIT:

    Ok so i checked and

    longer strides backwards work the posterior chain

    while shorter strides stress the quads.

    No one ever said they did not work the posterior chain and your argument is short strides vs long strides. Where does it say anything about forward working quads more than backwards?

    Reverse Lunges are always a good things to add on. Like stated it's like a squat. Kills your butt!

    so do we agree it is good to alternate lunge and reverse lunge, however,they dont need to be done in same routine.
