It’s been awhile since we posted a workout while we’ve been rebuilding Legion Fitness. While today is technically a rest day I have been using the down time to practice my nemesis and Achilles heel; the Double-under!
Who would have ever thought such a seemingly simple move could be so hard to master. It is though and I am learning very quickly that relaxing and not over-thinking are the keys to this movement..
So simply put today’s workout is all about Jump rope.
20 Jumping Jacks
Today I’m also going to recommend you get out and go for a short jog or walk followed by some dedicated time with a foam roller. If your week has been anything like mine than your legs, glutes, and back will thank you.
As many of you know I have expressed my plan to compete in next year’s CrossFit open. I have begun a training program with that goal in mind and starting tomorrow will be posting my workouts, along with explanations why I do certain moves and focus on certain concepts. Also you will soon notice that Legion Fitness is moving towards more of a nutritional focus. By far I receive more questions about nutrition and diet than any other subject and have decided to address the questions on a weekly basis.
While my diet could technically be considered Paleo, I just call it common sense avoidance of crap that has no benefit to my body. I all about how I arrived on my current nutrition plan entirely by accident and how simple it is to fill your diet with healthy foods that will encourage fat-loss and good health.
