Default Lunge variations

I was told that varying an exercise can really make a huge difference. How can I vary the lunge? I right now am doing a large step forward and have also started doing smaller steps forward to work on other areas. Any other way that I can perform a lunge to get some maximum benefits?

1. step forward one leg, lunge, jsut bring the back leg up parallel with your working/lunging leg, essentially working one leg at a time to keep the pressure on. IE:step fwd ten times on your left. turn around, step 10 times on your right, back to your starting position.

2. gently touch your knee to the ground, pause for "one one thousand count" while relaxing your leg muscle, then stand. will recruit more of the working leg, including the glutes on your lunge.

1. step backwards for a reverse lunge
2. I like to perform walking lunges and stay low while walking forward to keep constant tension..burns like crazy
3. shorter strides will put more emphasis on the quads
