Barbell Lunges

Are barbell lunges mainly for quads or hams?

The AST guys think its a quad exercise

    Quads, glutes, hams, just as he says: The primary muscles worked during barbell lunges are the quadriceps, glutes, and hamstrings.

    And Barbell lunges are a great exercise for total leg development. They heavily involve the quads, hamstrings and glutes.

    Using dumbbells makes things a bit easier, though.

    So it is Quads move then which get worked the most, ie squats work everything but their still a quad move.

    Just that I remember some people saying its a hamstring move.

    Thanks guys
