There are a number of CrossFit movements where a rebound is beneficial. The rebound out of the front swing of the pull-up ,or the bottom of a push-up . Box jumps, double-unders, and ball slams also use the rebound. Staying tight as you bounce out of the position at high speed is important in maintaining efficiency. CrossFit can also help with another type of rebound =) rebound from an injury, a bad day, a crappy meal, or from being dehydrated. We can bounce back and go again, as long as we hold tight and stay the course.
