Strength & Conditioning - Jeff Tucker: Week 1, Day 3

Jeff Tucker

Featured Coach

Fort Worth , Texas, United States

Gymnastics, CrossFit

Jeff Tucker discovered gymnastics in middle school and thought his path was set, but a dune buggy accident would end his competitive gymnastics career before he could graduate from high school. So instead Tucker spent over twenty years as a firefighter and police officer, before returning again to gymnastics - this time as a coach.


Tucker currently runs GSX gym in Fort Worth, Texas and is also the head of CrossFit Gymnastics. He travels the world teaching gymnastics and teaching others how to coach it, as well. For three weeks he'll be sharing his gymnastic-centered programming with us here on Breaking Muscle.



Four new workouts are posted each week, starting on Monday, and can be done on any day you have available. Make sure you warm up adequately before starting any of these workouts!
