Tuesday, August 27
I posted part one of this Mobility WOD last week that deals with motor patterns and how those patterns transfer from movement to movement. Part two talks about double unders (which are in today's WOD) so please take a look before you hit this workout. We say it a lot, but your single under jump and double under jump should look the same. We see a lot of craziness creep in when you are trying so hard to get a double under. The problem is that you are reinforcing bad motor patterns. And if you think jumping a couple hundred times in a workout while overextended and donkey kicking won't matter you are mistaken. Those bad jumping habits will show up in other movements that involve a jump, like the snatch and clean. Work on keeping your double under jump simple in the workout. Use it as practice to create quality movement and it will pay off down the road. Plus all that flailing about wastes a lot of energy. Keep tight and move efficiently. Watch the video here.
