    Walking lunges with a barbell behind you or dumbbells at your side is definitely not a waste of time.

    Calling lunges a failure is essentially calling squats a failure.

    Just make sure you give your legs enough time to recover before you do a sprint session. Running on sore legs is definitely a waste of time if you're trying to get faster.

    Lunges seem to hit my legs in a way that even heavy weights don't do!

    i didnt exactly mean to say that they wernt a failure, i just ment that is it like a waste of time compared to squating light weights. i usually lunge until failure which burns like a son of a gun. im pretty sore today so i think they are working for me pretty good. i need to pick up my speed.
