    I also love lunges! Have you tried jump lunges? Check out the video:

    They're killers! They used to be called kneeling gun drills in the army, and were banned in the mid 90's because they were allegedly bad for your knees.

    I once had to do them for 20 mins as a punishment for swearing at a briefing. U couldn't walk afterwards and felt the pain for days. Good times

    Don't you have all of these in your mark lauren book? He uses them all in the smart phone apps yayog.

    Side and back lunges hurt in very different ways to front lunges.

    Just started another 10 week block of yayog this week and it was a leg session last night

    Can watch Al K exercise all day. Sorry I'm sure that's not useful. Still true...
    Breathe. Move forward.

    I just eat what I want...

    I highly recommend it :-)
    I'm sore all over today after the last two days back on the program. But then I have been a lazy git for a few weeks

    bumping this coz i did some reverse lunges from a deficit w/barbell
    Performance U. Fitness Continuing Education | Lunge Exercise: Top 5 Lunge Variations

    except i used the bottom step of the steps under the pull up bar at the gym and 2 x 10kg kettle bells. 3 sets of 20. ie 10 on each leg supersetted with dumbbell bench press. they were way harder than normal heavy lunges with big dumbbells.

    i am gonna try the fighter's lunges next. then the offset lunges and some overhead lunges.

    Single-arm dumbbell overhead lunge--way harder than lunges where you hold two dumbbells at your side, for me, anyway. Single Arm Overhead Lunge - YouTube

    You can also do the same thing with squats--that's hard as well.
