Skill:

Double Under Review

Video courtesy of CrossFit Park City.  CrossFit Games legend, Chris Spealler going over double unders.  Really focus on keeping your midline stabilization (tight core) throughout the move.  When you set up, notice the mat you are standing on.  Your goal is NOT to go outside that mat.  So, jump up, not left or right, not forward or back, but straight up. Relax the arms and keep the elbows close so your rotation will come from the wrists.

Hand Stand Push Up review

Video courtesy of CrossFit HQ.  Once again Chris going over HSPU efficiency.  Your arm position through the motion should mimic that of a shoulder press.  For this to happen, notice how Matt Chan corrects an athlete’s hand position to better use the shoulder and triceps.
