There is a third possible lunge position that is stronger than both shown. A slight forward lean from the hip in the bottom position with weight on the forward heal. This position recruits more of the posterior chain and allows for faster steps or heavier weights. Neutral spin of course

Comment #24 - Posted by: Hurricane at February 2, 2013 6:32 AM

Hi, just wondered how much rest you're allowed in between sets, also is it a standing or seated press, i'm assuming it's BB too? If it's standing does that mean you have to be completely strict with bending the knees, ie no bending whatsoever. Oh yes a video would be fantastic, just soo i know i'm not cheating... Cheers

@#24 Richard
All presses done with CrossFit programming are done from standing position, unless there is an adaptation for disability or special populations. Unless otherwise stated it is always barbell. For this workout it calls for shoulder presses which do not involve any bending of the knees. If it were push presses, then there would be a bending of the knees for the dip to drive portion of that movement. Check out the FAQ for the how-to videos that will show the different movements. Hope this helps.

Comment #28 - Posted by: RickSolo at February 2, 2013 8:01 AM

To Richard brown yes they are standing bb and there are strict,no legs involved like a push press

I started off thinking I was better than I was. I am fighting off a little bug, so I am not sure if that played a factor as much as I would hope. I have done 145 for 6 in the last 6 months but this time I focused on not bending or flexing or anything. I tensed up the abs and tried to stand and use my shoulders without any cheating.
80 x 10 to warm up.
125 x 3 felt easy
130 x 3 felt good
135 x 0 just no strength
130 x 3 felt good
135 x 2 might have done three but lost & rhythm
130 x 3 felt difficult
135 x 2 just lost steam after two
130 x 2 kept losing steam
125 x 3 felt good

I hope next time to do better.

Comment #128 - Posted by: Jason Duby at February 3, 2013 8:37 PM

I respectfully disagree: Leaning forward WITH weight on front/leading heel is more "functional" since, in real life and sport, you will have your torso forward (little to a lot). When do you ever lunge with your torso fully upright in life? Only when told to do so, otherwise, the forward lean is the most appropriate weight distribution (with forward ambulation, of course)in most lunging exercises. Assuming one's knees are not unknowingly damaged or degenerated and ready to snap from other training and/or overuse, the forward lean is fine. Now, this changes a little bit if you have stuff in your hands or on your back or shoulders. So my statement is a generalization, not absolute. Let's not even get into shearing forces on the patella and ACL and PCL when insisting on a fully upright posture in lunges! (hint: just try to go upstairs or get off a toilet without a 'forward lean'....can't do it!). :) If I'm incorrect, I'm willing to learn! ;)

Frank, your willingness to learn is commendable.

Here's what you're missing...While some leaning forward, like in the squat, is ineluctable, the less the better. And, those most competent in their muscle recruitment will show the least forward inclination.

And...in the lunge, with the back leg extended, good athletes can find themselves more upright lunging than squatting in all it's variants. The important point being that the back leg extended provides an anchor from which the athlete can find balance even with the torso perpendicular.

The upright lunge, like the deadlifts ,and squats, in their more upright variants, has not only mechanical but tactical advantages.

Finally, Frank, concerns about sheer seem to me to be entirely misplaced. Where sheer exists it seems to be ignored and where sheer forces don't exists the cry is loudest. I think this is one of those cases.

Dan, #19 you on the other hand are entirely correct and we changed the pictures to conform to your point.
