A lot of Jumping today. Make sure your ankles and calves are ready for it — anyone with any issues/preexisting injuries should think about modifying the jumping movements to something a little different.

The Parallete Jumps are done sideways next to one Parallete. If you don’t have Paralletes, load up a Barbell and use that instead.

The goal for everyone should be to go as fast as they can across the whole workout. This doesn’t mean starting hard and then dying out; even though this might be a strategy for some people, try to be more consistent across the 15 rounds for today. That means staying relaxed and going through the motions. It is always good to try different strategies, as it gets you out of youir comfort zone and helps to give you a new approach to workouts that you wouldn’t otherwise do.

Fitness: The Fast Feet modification should be fast. We want you guys to be able to keep moving through it as quickly as you can. For the Parallete Jumps, if jumping is too much, you can hop with one foot at a time over or step over.
