Meats, Nuts, and Double Unders

Will E

Fastest way to a double under: using a properly-sized rope establish a “fast” single under, establish a “slow” single under, practice a double twist of the wrist, then put the slow jumps and a double twist together. Keep your body stretched and throw the double as soon as you detach from the ground.

Paul S

Jerk blocks provide an elevated surface to drop the weights back onto  when working on jerks. This way you don’t have to lower your weights back onto the rack position (a skill in itself) or to drop it down to the ground completely every rep.

My favorite tricep lockout accessories! In addition to Tate Presses, DB Rollback Extensions and the Dumbbell version of JM Presses are my favorites for building that lower part of the tricep, above the elbow, for a stronger lockout in any pressing movements.

Today we sample one of our CompEx classes and see what it’s like: the goal of these classes is more on work, less on skill development. Completion of the standards is paramount, how you complete it is up to you. The volume involved means that you can potentially do a lot of work multiple times with little recovery in between efforts.
