WOD 25 October: What are Burpee Box Jumps?

26 Oct

Well I thought it was quite self-explanatory but I unleashed burpee box jumps on the unsuspecting Monday evening class this week while Sally was away learning all things Gym Jones.

The workout was a shoulder mobilising warm-up followed by strict shoulder press (5-5-5-3-3-3) and then the met con: 10 burpee box jumps and 1 knees to elbows, 9 burpee box jumps and 2 knees to elbows… straight through to the end which looked like 1 burpee box jump and 10 knees to elbows. Finishing off with a last-man-standing plank competition (Lara you were so so close to clinching a win for the girls) and some shoulder stretching.

The session showed some strong technique in the overhead press and some nice big numbers and some smaller but still very impressive, despite Rosie and Temi unconvinced by my praise (and unconvinced by my chicken impression, that was meant as a help but seemed to end up a hindrance).

  1. Was tougher than it looks this one, it was all about the timing between the press and boxjump element of the burpee-boxjumps. I didn’t quite master it : (
