Are split squats and lunges the same?

In a split squat, the rear leg is at rest throughout the exercise -- it is not engaged. This is the key difference between the two exercises. A split squat focuses on the exercise entirely on one leg. The lunge uses both legs at the same time.

Likewise, people ask, what muscles do lunges work out?

Targeted muscles include the glutes in your hips and butt, along with the hamstrings and quadriceps in your thighs. The calf muscles in your lower legs, your abdominal muscles and your back muscles act as stabilizers during this exercise.
