CFJ WOD of Backflips and HS walking

http://journal.crossfit.com/2012/09/...reArticleTitle wfs

Come on people, let's do this!

I guess you could substitute backward or forward rolls, tuck jumps/box jumps (high ones), or a jumping skin the cat with the rings set at near max jump height reach.

They only did 1 round, but hopefully I will try this one soon.

I meant to do it before Weighlifting practice but didn't really have space. Afterwards, well I was hungry so I just wanted to get out and go eat.

Duh, Daryl. Don't do standing back flips if you can't do them.

You could let Noobs just do those jumps or HS walking up and down the wall or HS monkey walks on the wall (where you shoulder tap one hand at a time).

Something more likely to cause a spinal injury is burpee back flips because you start flipping really low.

Even then, anybody with some damn sense will stop and slow down.

Err...that might be the err. CrossFit peeps.
