Eric and Stacey are in California, and the rest of the Competition Team is departing at 6am this morning. That means we’ve got an old-school schedule and some old-school CrossFit benchmarks coming your way in the next few days.
Jackie’s a favorite of mine! It’s a great burner benchmark that anyone can RX once you get your pullups. Move fast! Determination to hang on to the bar and not break up your thrusters will make the difference on your speed – then it’s all up to how you attack the pullups.
One trick to keep in mind is how you maintain your back angle during the row. You can strain and wear yourself out fast in that row, which will make maintaining your upright form in the front squat portion of the thruster a significant challenge. Keep good form on the row, push straight through the thrusters, and then use your best strategy and guts on the pullups.
Morning is JT’s funtime just like the old days – noontime gets a taste of Dennis’ style, and the night-time is Yosh-time. (There may be dancing.) Yosh and JT head to California tomorrow night, so come on down and join us for one of my favorite benchmarks!
