    Why do I feel DOMS on my glute after doing lunges once when I regularly do hip thrust

    with more than twice the weight? I don't get it. My glutes should be already used to the workload. I remember when I first included hip thrusts to my routine I felt DOMS on the first few days but then I didn't feel anything even though I have been slowly increasing the weight.
    Now I do a few set of lunges with around 75% the load I use on hip thrusts and suddenly I'm feeling like I haven't trained my glutes ever before. How come?

    DOMS is common in novel exercises perhaps due to different combinations of fibers being used. Don't read too much into this though, some people take this as a sign that "muscle confusion" type workouts where you continuously change everything are the holy grail of lifting. Unfortunately it's not that simple / polarised.

    Completely different exercise. Like Suffolk said, don't think too far into it. Your glutes are getting worked well hip thrusts. You get sore doing exercises that you don't normally do, but soreness isn't an indicator of results...just infrequent stimulus.
    Experience, not just theory

    Just as the others have said, if you aren't regularly doing lunges, you will definitely feel DOMS. Try doing lunges twice a week or maybe as much as you do the hip thrusts, and you won't be as sore as often.
    Just pick that sh!t up!

    Combination of the exercise being newer to you and what is probably a stronger eccentric contraction over a longer range of motion, imo

    Suffolk and davis gave great answers of course, this is what I came in to say ^, more eccentric in the lunge, the loaded eccentric portion of movements seems to be responsible for a lot of the DOMs

    Yeah I think that's it. On hip thrusts the range of motion and time under tension is short, while on lunges ROM is much longer, specially on those last reps. I think I will ditch hip thrusts and start doing lunges. It's seems to me like a more complete exercise, which targets no only glutes but quads to a lesser degree.

    It's both. The single best way is always to do something you are not used to doing. But also eccentrics are good at producing soreness

    I don't like focusing on eccentrics. I just try to lower the weight in a controlled manner. I tried for some time doing 3 sec eccentrics but it's boring for me, also because of the extra effort I can't do as many reps.

    I was just reading about lunges and it says it's primarily a quads exercise. Weird that when I do it I feel like the glutes are doing most of the work. Different to squats for example. On those you can easily tell the quads are the main muscle worked.

    Well you're pulling the body forward on each lift, and you're also stretching the leg backwards right after as it supports the eccentric.
