Play Ball (Time)

20 Box Jump Overs (24/20)

30 Wallballs (20/14)(14/10)
THE WHY

Stepping to a box vs. jumping to a box creates very different stimuli. Stepping tends to be more muscularly taxing, whereas jumping to a box can be very taxing on endurance and stamina while incorporating other skills like accuracy and coordination. Within today’s workout, we prefer jumping as opposed to stepping up for this reason.

It is understandable that many athletes have reservations about jumping to an object. It can be intimidating at times. Barring any injuries, starting small is better than not starting at all. Jumping to a plate, small box, or soft box can be a good place to start. Baby steps. Or in this case, baby jumps!

RX wallballs are little lighter today, try to get them unbroken.
