Celebrating PR's, finishing a WOD, getting your first pull up or simply the fact that you showed up today.
A good high five can make a somebody's day and a bad one is frankly just embarrassing.
Here's 6 tips on how to execute a good one.
- Make the first move
He who initiates the high five, owns the high five.
- Heads up
Get the attention of the high five-ee. Make sure they know its coming. High five-ing thin air is just embarrassing.
- Go big or go home
A lifeless high five is worse than a limp hand shake. Energy is key. Give it some oomph!
- Eyes on the elbows
The palm is a moving, unpredictable target. Instead, keep your eye on the elbow to ensure you don’t miss.
- Cup your palm
Make your hand slightly concave to create a satisfying thunderclap.
- Howl on contact
Like a wolf at the moon. Awooooooo!!!
