Why A CrossFit Athlete Should Track Reactive Strength

  • On December 2, 2016
What is Reactive Strength Index? Reactive Strength Index (RSI) is a ratio between the height (or flight time) an athlete jumps and the speed in which the athlete jumps. RSI is calculated by dividing the height jumped (centimeters) by the ground contact time (milliseconds). If an athlete jumped 36cm with a contact time of 180ms […]
