Do you prefer squats or lunges?
Personally, I love lunges. You will rarely find me doing squats. Here’s my thought process:
- I feel like my muscles are more engaged and I’m getting more effective movement in my glutes.
- Lunges are more fun (in my opinion). There’s much more variety with lunges. Where a squats a squat.
- Less strain on my back.
- It’s easier to get the movement right! Form can’t be sacrificed as easily. It’s not easy getting correct form for a squat.
- Unilateral movements (movement on one side of the body) is much easier for me to focus on and feel that mind/body connection.
