The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

Anyone doing lunges or squats
« on: January 23, 2011, 08:36:24 PM »
I am 13 months post surgery.  I have been skiing.  Felt good.  I have a new work out routine which requires lunges and squats.  I have been doing squats with weights for a while  i have not done lunges.  I fell like i can without problem.  Any input?   

Anyone know how to post a video?

A couple of my favorite lunge workouts:

1. On a 400 meter track - do 5 walking lunges and 5 pushups - repeat all the way around the track

2. Hold a weight (I use a 45lb plate) directly overhead and do 14 walking lunges, (7 on each leg)/ rest 1min then repeat 2-6 more times. As you get more fit do fifteen 6 count burpees in between lunge sets.

have fun,

I find lunges more challenging/effective than squats but not a problem doing them.

I've been doing them about once a week with 15kg on a straight bar or 12kg on dumbells.    I find the lunges good for balance and keeping the legs straight while doing them.     I really should do them more often.   ;D

lunges, deadlifts and squats - all good! I find the lunges where you go at a 45 degree angle out (not straight ahead) work gluts very well

Nothing like squats to strengthen the legs, hips and back. They really helped my skiing.  I do not do any heavy weights anymore but just enough to wake up my legs and keep them in shape.

At 13 months I personally did not like lunges because my hip would still click a lot while I was doing them.
