Power:
Seated Box Jumps

WOD:
“Nancy”
5 Rounds
400m Run
15 Overhead Squats (96/65)

We will work on our seated box jumps today! This is a great way to learn to use that powerful hip drive from a stationary position (you won’t be able to get that extra dip to initiate the movement.) This transfers over into so many other movements we do at the gym! It will really force you to open up your hips and get all that power from them.

And then we take on one of our favorites – Nancy! Simple by design, brutal in execution. Five rounds of 400m run and 15 overhead squats. It’s a fantastic couplet that will keep you moving and gasping for breath. Be sure and scale the overhead weight so that you can get the full range of motion – all the way down to the bottom of that squat and do it with decent form. Overhead squats are unforgiving. Choose wisely!
