Is there a comparable exercise to the walking lunges? Iam going to have to use the limited space and equipment in the workout room of the police department I work in for the next couple of days and the room is somewhat small to say the least, and cramped too! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Split squats. Same stance, but you don't travel. Push back when you rise; really kills the quads.

John,

There's always room for the walking lunge. Retrace your path to the workout room but lunge instead. You'll look funny but you'll be engaging your posterior chain in a way that "standing lunges" and other "push back" exercises can't approximate.

The walking lunge exceeds the normal ROM for both running and walking and thereby improves both substantialy.

Coach

From another site:
"Rosenberg added about 10 feet to his 28 WFD this morning cranking over 40 feet.

I got a ton of 56s over 26 and 27 with Brian Oldfield giving me [expletive deleted] on every throw. Scottish hammer and O lifting this afternoon.

I am showing World Class's snatch video as we speak. I worked with a Stanford thrower yesterday on the snatch (we brought our own O set to train in the dorm) and I worked out five times yesterday with throws, weights, Highland Games and a competition. I am...sore.

Last night, I struggled with 70 kilo snatches as I had nothing left.

Ah, age. Learning a lot here, though...

Sounds like fun, Dan. I look forward to any write-up.

back on-topic: Coach, to make walking lunges in limited space "more effective", has anyone considered lunging forward and then in reverse (walk-lunge backwards)? It might be a safety problem, but then again...

I'd try them myself, but I'm waiting on spinal surgery at this time.

Actually, just doing "jump lunges" (there's probably a better name?) is a pretty good exercise.

Just "jump" in place with a lunge position landing (one leg forward, knee bent just about 90 degrees, the other extended backward fully, very little knee bend, but rear knee is near the floor). Each jump reverse the legs forward and backward.

Try doing these in the Tabata protocol instead of squats . . . for me, a very interesting (and nearly religious) experience.
