Nicole

Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
Run 400 meters
Max rep Pull-ups

Score will be number of pull-ups completed each round and total pull-ups completed.

Isn’t this what you always do first thing?!

Basic Principles of Efficient Movement (think about these while running today):
Work WITH the laws of nature, not against them.
You go where your body weight goes.
Muscle activity should “service” your body weight, not the other way around.

Natural Forces in Running:
1. Gravity
2. Ground reaction
3. Muscle elasticity
4. Muscle contraction
5. Torque
6. Momentum/Inertia

Summary: Work with your mojo, not against it.
