Barbell Assisted Dorsiflexion – 2 rounds of :45 on, :45 off.
With an empty barbell, find a stance that is a bit narrower than your squat stance. Find the bottom of the squat, and place the barbell on top of your knees. The weight of the barbell further drives the knees over the toes, decreasing the angle between your shins to the floor.
Key note – the heels must stay down throughout the movement.
On your second round, try a slightly more narrow stance than your first. The goal is to eventually work towards having your feet together for this stretch.
Perform 3 Air Squats after each set to test/retest your ability to maintain an upright torso.
Thoracic and Lat Foam Rolling – 2:00 total
Spend 2:00 loosening up the upper back and lats.

Set 2 – Empty barbell
Set 3, 4, and 5 – Add just a touch of weight.

Goal today is to build to a heavy – not a max. After warming up, set the clock and give yourself no more than 10:00 to find your heavy for the day.
40 Air Squats
20 Calorie Row
he double-under is a big focus point for this workout. Athletes who can go unbroken here have an enormous advantage here – ground can be gained on the squats and the row, but the separation between the athlete performing unbroken double-unders compared to an athlete that trips up 4+ times each set can be minutes on the clock.
We have some thoughts for you as you warm up for this workout:
1. Hands are by the sides. Imagine yourself in a tight corridor and your hands can’t get more than 6 inches away from your body.
2. Shoulders are relaxed. For an efficient DU, the turn comes from the wrist. Shrug your shoulders out, and relax. Imagine drawing tight little circles on a whiteboard.
3. Be on a pogo stick. This cue works well for those who either “donkey kick”, “pike”, or have some sort of change to their double-under jump than your single under jump. On a pogo stick, the body is nice and vertical in the air. If you were to pike or donkey kick on a pogo stick, that next jump wouldn’t work out so well. Get long and tall in the air, lock out your knees, and stay vertical.
