We worked on box jumps the other night at gymnastic skills class. I have a phobia of banging/scraping my shin on the wooden boxes (having done so couple of times in the past), so I usually just step up whenever box jumps are in the metcon. Our boxes are 20″, 24″ and 30″.
Instead of working with the box, I used bumper plates. I kept adding height. I got to this:
which was 26.5 inches. I put a 10 lb plate on top of that and either I was fatigued, or I couldn’t jump that extra inch higher. Next time.
We went to Saskatoon to watch the SRDL season opener. It was quite odd to be sitting in the stands and spectating. I haven’t watched a game in non-ref mode for a couple of years. They were quite good games and we had a good time, even though Denny’s was closed when we went to eat after.
Ha ha – I saw this photo from the last week of the Crossfit Open:
