Good points, Ryan. I was originally wondering whether it would be beneficial to post this as, after all, the WOD is quite a bit on its own. However, I feel that there is something to be learned from every source, so I'll keep on looking.
Yeah, those olympic lifters are beasts. Wasn't there some link of a short interview with Tommy Kono(sp?) on here a while ago? I believe he said that his vertical jump was higher than average, without any special training outside of the lifts.
