The standards on this… facing the barbell, he’s going to drop down and touch the ground. Thighs and chest touching, that’s the standard. He’s going to come up… and how he get’s up at this point doesn’t matter. He’s now on two feet. He has to jump off two feet, and land on two feet. Now notice he started to twist in the air. That’s fine. You can jump forward, you can jump sideways, you can jump backwards, you can jump and twist 180 degrees in the air. It doesn’t matter. You have to jump off two feet, and you have to land on two feet at the same time… from here, if you haven’t turned in the air, you have to turn and face the barbell, and he can do that as he is going down, it doesn’t matter

Extra Credit:

Handstand Pushups: 3 set of max reps

Cash Out:

Roll Out Back and hips.  2 min per side.

 

In case you guys missed it the first time, next Sunday, July 8th, CrossFit Omaha will be hosting a Throwndown fundraiser to help raise funds for athletes from CFO and CrossFit Lincoln who are going to be in the CrossFit Games in California.  All local Affiliate members have been invited to compete and join in the cookout afterwards.  It’s going to be a great time to compete and get to know the good folks in the local CF community.

CAN!

For those wanting to sign up, I have posted both a team and a free agent sheet on the whiteboard in the TOTF area.  Please sign up by 1July and get me the money by 5July.  – Coach D
