Today's workout has 150 box jumps. That's a very high volume of box jumps! If 150 box jumps is not right for you today, you will substitute some or all of your box jumps with tuck jumps. Noah demonstrates tuck jumps in the photo on the left and Brian K. demonstrates box jumps in the photo on the right. As you can see, tuck jumps require the same jumping and landing mechanics as box jumps. Properly performed tuck jumps also achieve the same height as box jumps. Tuck jumps are a fantastic substitution for today's workout and allow you to control your own risk management.
We are nearing the end of our Whole Life Challenge. These last 2 weeks are the hardest for many of us. We are ready to not be so dang accountable all of the time! However, the WLC is 8 weeks for a REASON! The real benefit of the WLC is solidified in the final 2 weeks. This is when we learn about our commitment, resolve and concentration.
This week's WLC lifestyle challenge is to, every day, find something you don't use and get rid of it. Here's the challenge in a nutshell:
5 rounds for time of:
400 m Run
30 Box Jumps 24/ 20 in
30 Wall Balls 20/14 lbs
There is a 45 min time cap for today's workout. Compare to March 7, 2015
