Daily Mindset
"Life is like sailing. You can use any wind to go in any direction." -Robert Brault
Are we sailing North on purpose, or is it because the wind is taking us that way?
Life will throw its curveballs. It’s unseen illnesses, injuries, and schedule conflicts. But it is a choice to allow those to change our cardinal direction. There is always a way to continue in the direction we want.
When the challenge strikes, we don’t adjust the goal. We adjust the sails.

Teach / Specific Prep
[15:00 – 25:00] DOUBLE UNDERS – When to Jump
On all 3 movements today, we’ll talk about when to jump. On the rope, whether we’re doing doubles or singles, we want to jump right before the rope makes contact with the ground. Doing this is ideal for timing an efficiency. If we jump just before it hits the feet, it allows us to spend more time in the air while the rope is rotating around the body. If we jump too early, we’re more likely to stomp on the rope, make contact with the toes, or pull the feet up to compensate.

30 Seconds Single Unders
30 Seconds Double Under Practice

WALLBALLS – When to Jump
In the wallball, we want to maintain momentum out of the bottom of the squat. Carrying the drive from the legs directly into the pop of the hips and the press of the arms makes for a smooth "core to extremity" wave. Pausing our upward movement at any point will put more of the work on the upper body. Look to maintain one fluid motion throughout the wallball.

5 Front Squats
5 Push Press
5 Thrusters
5 Wallballs

POWER CLEANS – When to Jump
On the power clean, we can think about having two speeds. Slow below the knees, and fast above the knees. Jumping immediately from the ground will likely pull us out of a good position. Instead, let’s be patient below the knees and more explosive above the knees. Speed through the middle is the key.
