    Is there any value in doing the kneeling lunge over a front split?

    It feels to me like the lunge might be just a progression towards the split - meaning if you can get into a reasonable split, you may as well do that.

    I'm debating swapping the lunge out of my stretching sequence for a split, since my hamstring flexibility has come along enough to enable a decent hip flexor stretch in the split.

    This is what the Flexible Steel book recommends. It’s in the chapter in front splits under the heading Putting It All Together.
