Default Lunges

Do lunges work the hamstring or are they more of a exercise for the quadriceps?

While I'm no expert, I would say they are primarily a quad exercise that has both glute and hamstring involvement.

Both, depends on how you do them. If you want to emphasize the quad, press from the ball of the foot. If you want to do the hamstrings, you need to press with the heels
