The max height box jumps were great today!

I know that there is a bit of an inherent fear factor with something like that. Most of you did a great job committing to the task and conquering that fear! That is the good stuff!!! 



Let's talk about the mindset going into a 1 rep max... anything:

It is absolutely imperative that you have confidence in your ability and your movement in order to get the work done. Have a positive mental attitude!!! Your mindset has a lot to do with your performance!!! For example, if you think the weight is too heavy, it will be too heavy. Trust you athleticism, your skill, and your technique to get it done. Believe that you can do it. Worst case, drop the bar. Obviously, safety and quality movement are a prerequisite.

Most of you are way stronger than you think you are. You need to be 100% committed or it wont happen. A lot of times, we tend to learn from missed reps. You understand what it feels like and then you can teach yourselves what you need to do to get it done. You prove a lot to yourselves when you commit to something and the results follow. I saw a lot of this today, as well as some really great teamwork. Keep it up!
