Jon Bik considers himself lucky that he only lost his leg after a 40-foot fall off a power pole. Landing on his feet might have saved his life, and with the use of a prosthetic limb, Jon remains active and fit.
While training at CrossFit East Sacramento, Jon talks about his injury and the rehab he had to go through, then he works on the push press.
Jon’s a strong guy who uses a lot of upper-body strength in the push press, and Justin Riley encourages him to use hip drive to make the lower body do as much of the work as possible. Jon may be working with a prosthetic on his right side, but after a few reps he gets the movement down pat and explains that he can rely on his left leg to generate most of the speed.
