Zari Goldmann:

Three of the four events rely on legs, but I was always worried about too much pounding and overuse injuries. So this summer we created two circuits – one leg circuit that involved impact, landing, jumping etc and one that didn’t involve those. That way I could be sure that those muscles were getting stronger without worrying about how many times kids were hitting the floor
