DO DOUBLE UNDERS!! What better way to learn than under fire. This wod should come in right around 15 minutes if you can run well and do double unders. If not, reflect on what you could have done better/faster and make it happen for next time!

If you don’t have a jump rope, perform a tuckjump instead. This will count as one rep. All you do is jump as high as you can, tuck your knees into your chest while in midair, and then land any way you want. The goal is to bring your knees as high as possible for each rep. If you cheat, you’re only cheating yourself.

CrossFit HQ WOD:

Tabata “Bottom to Bottom” Squat
Run 1 mile

Clock starts for run on rising from last squat.

The Tabata Bottom to Bottom Squat is a Tabata Squat but each rep begins at the bottom and ends at the bottom. The turn around at the top is immediate – no pause. The ten-second rest for each interval is also held at the bottom of the squat as opposed to the top. Interestingly, this squat, in contrast to the “normal” Tabata squat, motivates full hip extension. Also, the ten second rests don’t seem as short with this protocol!

HQ is going OLD SCHOOL!
