I do something similar to the Cindy. Didn't actually know that's what it was though.

Plank, push ups, squats do a few rounds with no rest to warm up. Sometimes pull-ups instead of push ups. On an incline, also.

higher cut calves dont mean jack man
For athletic purposes it absolutely does. The length of achilles tendon plays a big role in power/leaping ability.
i have em :lol:

but then again i had servere tendonitis in both knees in my teens so i could never utilize them for leaping even tho i could jump in my younger days :smh:

Did a Hero WOD today "TD"

Completed in 33:47 scaled down to max load of 115lbs

1 round of TD = 12 DLs, 9 hang power cleans, 6 pushjerks

So it went
TD x 4 (75lbs) rest 1 minute
TD x 3 (75lbs) rest 2 mins
TD x 2 (95lbs) rest 3 mins
TD x 1 (95lbs) rest 4 mins
TD x 1 (105lbs) rest 5 mins
TD x 1 (115lbs)

Rx was a max load of 155lbs and starting @ 95lbs

Hit legs this morning.  Did some front squats, Lunges, Machine Hack Squats, Leg Extensions and Lying Leg Curls.

Don't mind the lousy gym music and the screen orientation....lol

Lunges are the devil. I do them with DBs after front squats and my hamstrings are sore for the next couple days.

coming into this, i was agile but my legs were weak as hell. it's funny how certain exercises can reveal such a random deficiency...  i hated db lunges after a few tries but i hate feeling inadequate even more so i devoted myself to getting better. i saw solid growth in my hamstrings and overall balance after a few months.

Yup thats them.. $200 :smh: lol ill stick to roshes and chucks
One week in, and worth every penny. Got them with the 20% eastbay promo code. I wouldn't work out in Roshe's though. No support in the upper, and the midsole/sole is too thick and unstable.

This looks like the DT.

12 DL's, 9 Hang Cleans, 6 Push Jerks. 5 rounds for time @155. Did it last week, did it in 12 minutes.

Might give this a shot, 95-115-135-155, is that the progression?
