Walking Lunges

I have a question on the walking lunges. Do you use wieght if the WOD says 15 steps Walking Lunges? How much if yes? And is it 15 steps each leg?

Just getting started and want to do this correctly. Thanks.

Re: Walking Lunges

Jeff,

The key to understanding the WODs is that you do them exactly as they are written. It's very rare that a mistake is made in posting a WOD. You only use a weight if a weight is given. So if it just says walking lunges, then no weight. A similar concept which has caused confusion for a lot of people is if a WOD is for time or not. Again, the answer is whatever the instructions say. A WOD is only for time if it says "for time" in the instructions. If you don't see the words for time in the instructions, rest as much as you need to between sets, reps.

I assume from your question that you are specifically referring to the WOD from Monday. The instructions say "15 Steps, Walking Lunge". It does not say Walking Lunge, 15 Steps per leg, so do 15 Steps, Walking Lunge. That will be 8 steps with one leg and 7 with the other. If you are confused about what to do and don't have time to ask the question on the comments, just do your best and try to write down what you did in a way that you will understand later. This way you will better be able to compare your times from WOD to WOD.

One other hint at figuring out a WOD is to look at the comments. A lot of questions are answered in there. If you are doing a WOD soon after it is posted and there aren't very many comments, click on the compare to link and look at the comments from when the WOD came up before. If it's a new WOD, just do your best.
