Walking or standing lunges. Is one better than to the other, if so why?
I do backwards lunges, easier on the knee. Try moving backwards. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
Never thought of that. I'll try it. Thanks
Yeah we always do forward motions. Backwards add a little challenge to it. Plus it's soooooo much better for the knees if you're like me with knee issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
My knees are awful.
my knees cant take leg extensions, lunges are what i moved to instead, and leg press. I my try the backward ones
Leg extensions are awful for your knees. It's patellar tendinitis waiting to happen. It wasn't an issue when I was 18. But now after some wear and tear and injuries I've learned to have to train in different ways and smarter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

Walking lunges are less invasive for my old knees for some reason.
They're called reverse lunges. Do them all the time, but only stationary. I've never seen anyone lunge backwards down the gym hall... ..... That has to take a boat load of concentration if you've got a barbell on your shoulders.
Forget lunges man , my right knee would give out in me , quick ! So to warm up I'll use the leg extension on the lowest setting which is 10lbs and after about 15min I'll start knocking out leg presses ! That's my go to .
Love DB lunges... they feel great to me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Well...it's official....."The 44" is a freak!
I like split squats with rear foot on a bench. Even though they're similar, lunges hurt my knees and split squats don't as much.
Squats with DB's? Sent from my VS986 using Tapatalk
