Improving skills and strength training
« on: May 13, 2008, 05:49:56 PM »
Alright everyone, i know many of you are very good and train often, but there are those of us who need some help with motivation and knowledge on moves and training.  So...Please post anything that you feel will help anyone to improve technique and strength.  Do you have a favorite work out that really kills your legs and helps with jump height and distance? or upper body and back strength? ect...  What variations have you found to add to some more basic or advanced skills?

i call them sprint jumps but they dont realy have a name
you go to a tenis cort and sprint from one end of the cort to the other but when you get to the net you jump over it and when you get over it imdeatly go into a sprint
i usualy do 3 sets of 6 but do what evers best for you

I have a nature-esque course  near my cabin by the Platte River off of Highway 92. Lots of fallen trees, so good balance/prescions/all sorts of vaults, There are also some weird trees that arc 5 feet off the groung great for underbars/pullups/elevated vaults. Talk to me about it! It's awesome!  ;D :P

Table up.

flat footed you go to the end of a tall picnic table.
and jump up to the top of the table landing flat footed.
lather. rinse. repeat.
