squats can if you want to do them that way

I've done exercise videos that have you come back up from a squat into a kick, alternating sides without pausing, and that felt similar, but not as strenuous.
I've started doing both, more lunges than squats, to cover my bases and add some variety. I also do Romanian deadlifts and bent over rows, and I feel like I'm getting a much more effective workout for specific muscles now that the difference is clear and I'm not mixing the exercises or using improper form.
