On the January 31 rest day, there is a picture of "a quick fix for wide jumping." I'm wondering if anyone can explain what "wide jumping" is and why it should be avoided. Thanks.

This is a nitpicky question, but I gotta ask. Are the WODs conceived to be done in the order they are posted? It seems that some are obviously so, and others I'm not sure about. I ask because my...
