Today was a longer workout than most we’ve had recently, a 5-rounder that challenged everyone in different ways – the coordination and rhythm of Double-Unders, the abdominal strength and endurance of Knees to Elbows, and the balance and mental fortitude of walking with weight overhead.  A few people came out of the workout with a little bit more of a feel for the Double-Under technique, with Mike and Andy each stringing together personal records of consecutive jumps.
In the end, Craig pulled out the daily win with a time of 15:32, capitalizing on his near-perfect form on the Double-Unders and sheer tenacity to get one more rep on the bar.  Amazing job today, Craig!
Tomorrow we take a break from the grinder and go heavy again, this time we’ll practice the Clean and Jerk and then build up to a one-rep max.
Clean and Jerk, 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps
