For those of us crazy enough to have signed on for the Crossfit Open, we’re privileged to be faced with this

10 minute AMRAP of:
5 Shoulder to overhead, 115 / 75 lbs
10 Deadlift, 115 / 75 lbs
15 Box jump, 24 / 20 inch

Deads are cool by me and I finally overcame my terror of box jumps, but the shoulder to overhead? I’m too new at CF to know how that will go. Nonetheless I did my homework and Mobility WOD has a video out on how to go about this week’s battle. 13.2 aside, I think this is a great primer on how to efficiently perform at both box jumps and deads. I hope I remember the finer points as I shoot for at least 4 rounds (I know, low expectations).

And since WordPress now sucks monkey balls and won’t let me embed the video, here’s a link. Enjoy!
