Skill

Tabata double unders 

Today’s skill work is an opportunity to work on the difficult double under.  If you have the movement down but are still working on knocking out sustainable sets this will be a great time to build your stamina by finding a sustainable work level.   Stay relaxed in the shoulders and jump with as much efficiency as possible.  If you are new to the movement make 1-3 attempts during every work period. Start by performing single unders and introduce a double under attempt every 3-4 minutes. When you attempt your double unders perform the same jump as with your single unders but get more height with an explosive jump and speed up the turn on your rope.  If you’re expert level at double unders and certain you would go unbroken every round use this time to work on Triple Unders!

WOD

AMRAP in 20 Minutes *

2 Push-ups
1 Jumping pull-up

*  10 Air Squats EMOM

Workout notes: Today’s workout is a little bit like the classic CrossFit workout “Cindy”. The workout is entirely bodyweight and in a longer time domain. We’ll use the minute timer to add a buy in for the push-ups and pull-ups. Perform 10 squats every minute prior to working on the AMRAP.  For the jumping pull-ups use a bar that is outside of your reach, we want you to pass through some portion of a strict pull-up if possible.  Score your rounds by counting the number of pull-ups you complete. Every time you complete a pull-up you’ll mark one round.
