Jumping Rope: Timing, Coordination, Balance


Programming for Thursday, September 5, 2013

Jumping rope is all about timing, coordination, and the ability to loosen up while still maintaining a stable body position. Without relaxed shoulders and wrists, we will not be able to swiftly and effortlessly swing the rope around our bodies. But with out maintaining a solid core we will become sloppy and likely obstruct the path of the rope. In a sense, jump rope is about finding the balance between steadiness and ease. Can you find it?

SICFIT WOW Wednesday


Programming for Wednesday, September 4, 2013

This week’s WOW will measure many different types of strength. Physically, it will measure the endurance of our core, the strength of our shoulders, and our ability to stabilize in a horizontal or upside down position. Mentally, it will asses our ability to remain calm, steadfast, and determined to keep holding on when everything inside of us is begging us to drop to ground. Emotionally this week’s WOW will test the positive or negative psychological fuel you feed yourself during strenuous work. Put all of this together and the SICFIT WOW is more than just a physical fitness test, but rather a fitness test of your entire being.
