    Lunges: back knee touching the ground?

    When I do lunges I usually let my back knee touch the ground, then push back up with my front leg. Is this a good or bad idea? I find I feel it more in the quads this way.

    It's more of a personal preference than anything. Letting your knee touch the ground slightly is a good way to be sure you are getting a full ROM though. If it works for you, stick with it.

    its seems to be mostly a preference thing. Your main objective is to get the front, upper leg to a 90 degree angle to the ground. If your back knee touches, great. If not, great. It is mainly a matter of flexibility.

    the deeper the better. try wieghted lunges on a step with 4 or 5 blocks, best butt workout i've ever done period. but after squats im basically finished anyways lol
    If what I see does not amaze me, I am not looking hard enough.

    The more you learn, the more you realize you don't know.

    lol x2. Squats just drain the life out of me, which is why I split my workouts with two leg days each week. One for squats, the other for variety.

    It's fine. You will be getting a full ROM with that technique. Just watch out when you get fatigued. There is a tendency, for some, to rebound the trailing knee off the floor to make the exercise easier.
