Is there a lunge test in the Marines???... lunges 1/4 mile at a time...
Given that the body has a finite ability to recover and you have a finite amount of time to train, I wouldn't waste any time or recovery on lunging- unless you wanted to be able to challenge your friends to a lunge-off.
As for running with a ruck, I'd say the overwhelming majority who say it's dumb have never made it through a selection process.
