Movement Standards

Split Squat Jumps: Similar to a Jumping Lunge, but no need to touch your knee to the ground. Start in a standing position. Jump your feet to a lunge position, but keep your knee a few inches off the ground. Count one repetition per side. Jump and switch feet position to land in a lunge with the opposite forward. That’s two repetitions. See: Split Squat Jump video demo.

Background: “Super Legs” is from a collection of “travel WODs” (workouts you can do with no equipment) by CrossFit Stimulus @crossfitstimulus (Hampton, VA, USA) that gained popularity after the gym posted the list on their own website for any time members couldn’t make it to the gym. The page said, “…we’ve put together over two weeks’ worth of travel WODs that require no equipment but it can easily be added if you [have] free weights!”

A workout nearly identical to “Super Legs” was used by Rob Shaul of Mountain Tactical Institue @mountain_tactical (formerly Military Athlete), who first incorporated into his training program around 2009 or 2010, called for “Jumping Lunges” instead of “Split Jump Squats.”
