Max box jump height
Here’s a video to inspire us all on our box jumps. The explosiveness and power to box jump 61inches is just insane!
Box jumps 61 inches!
Power cleans (95#/65#)
Knees to elbow
V-ups (Adv: GHD Sit ups)
Today’s highest box jump was 52″, and done by Shelby! Way to go man!! Great work everyone, and here are some pics from the day!
Here’s another great video to check out that Meredyth found for us. It is on Knees to Elbows and how to do them properly, how to modify, and how to make them more advanced. The thought is that a knees to elbow should be done strict and where your knees go completely all the way to your knees. Most all of us, if we can, use the kip which helps you go faster and get in somewhat of a groove. However, it is completely true that if you just do a strict drawing of your knees to your elbows, you are using so many more little muscles from your hips, to core, to shoulders, resulting in a stronger self. You better believe we’ll be doing more knees to elbows in our warm ups! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqOgtFcqWbE
Well, I guess it’s video day, but here’s also a video of the power clean that I posted a while ago. This is a great video because it gives you a chance to look at the movement in slow motion and see exactly each element of the power clean. It also tracks the line of the bar to show that never do you muscle up the bar to your chest, but rather use the explosion from your hips to drive that bar up, hit the shrug and high elbows, then get under the bar. If you have just a minute, this really is a great video to take a second and watch!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TlbDQUWs0s
