Ramon takes a quick breath while doing box jumps. Remember that it is usually a good idea to rest on top of the box as opposed to on the ground. This makes the starting rep of your next set easier.

Hamstrung by Keith Wittenstein Crossfit Virtuosity
“Probably the most common condition that hinders athletic performance is tight hamstrings. Short tight hamstrings impede athletic performance in one simple but important way: they restrict the closing of the hip joint, i.e. they limit the anterior tilt of the pelvis. This restriction on the movement of the pelvis results in the muscles of the lower back taking up the slack. The negative impact is twofold: 1) the range of motion of the hips is restricted which reduces the power that can be produced by the hips; and 2) the lower back is put into flexion and thus susceptible to injury.”
