WOD for Wednesday (WATCH THE VIDEO. IT’S 2 MINUTES LONG!)February 11, 2015
Athletes, first and foremost, hats off to some very good efforts on interval tuesday. 2-9-15 was one of the few days where almost everyone seemed spent at most of the interval’s end. A handfull of guys are breaking into the 50+ calorie range which is excellent. Zack and Glen leading the field at 57. Kristen F hit 40 and Vilija and Andrea both were at 38. But numbers aside, most everyone really worked to their threshold today, which is very cool to see.
Wednesday’s front burner concern is the BOX JUMP. Please watch this 2 minute video. Not the demonstration athlete’s HAND POSITION AT THE MOMENT OF CONTACT WITH THE FLOOR. They are slightly behind the hips, allowing him to immediately “punch” the sky and rebound back up to the box. This is crucial to fast rebound cycling the box jump. We will discuss. On another note, the lecturing athlete recommends keeping the box surface in your periphery but not focusing on it. Here I disagree. Look at where your feet are going, just don’t drop your chin to do so.
