One of the guys that is training with me asked a question that I didnt have an answer to. What functional movement mimics moving a load moving across your body. The example of a row of people facing the same direction feet touching side by sided passing sandbags (40-50lbs) from one person to the next (as fast as possible) from left to right or the reverse?
i know of medicine ball drills, but other than actually doing the sandbag drill is there anything else that will improve this skill?

Got this idea from the CrossFit Central in Austin TX people.
Grab a 8-10# object, (med ball, weight, sand bag)
hold it out infront of you with arms locked, lunge and twist your torso in the direction of the leading leg, recover and repeat with the other leg leading. rinse repeat and don't blame me for the pain. We did a "chopping" motion with the med ball over head and brought it down to the outside knee on the leading leg and alternated it. Ouch!

There's always this evil gem, which pretty well pegged the suck-meter when it was a WOD:

Of course it's safe (with the sound off) - it's a CrossFit video!

Dave,

How about alternating sides with a sledge hammer on an old tire, or if you've got wood to chop you could do the same with an axe (keep it safe!).

Nice video of the virtual shoveling Lynneeee.

I got to do plenty of real shoveling in Cleveland last week, talk about pegging the suck-meter.

Since I see you get "e" shorted quite often, I figured I'd give you a few extra this time :gunsmilie: I'm sure I'll be in trouble if others start to do the same!

Please don't delete my account, post #200 is next:giveup:
