CrossFit: Explosive Power WOD
5 rounds of pressing and jumping your way to more explosive power.
You probably remember the equation from physics class, Power = (Force x Distance)/Time. So what does this have to do with explosive power? It’s the distance. The farther the distance a particular weight travels, the greater the work, and therefore, the greater the power. With this short blast of a WOD, you’ll be moving a weighted barbell from the floor to your shoulders in a Power Clean (a longer distance than a Full Squat Clean) and then moving your full body weight onto a box which is another example of moving weight through a longer distance.
