Scaling Tips: Push the pace on the rower. Find a variation of the handstand push-ups and rope climbs that challenge upper-body gymnastics strength. If you can complete 10 unbroken parallette handstand push ups, start the workout as-prescribed. If at any point you cannot do 2 unbroken reps on parallettes, finish the workout with regular handstand push-ups.

Lifting Day!

Front Squat

5-5-5-5-5

Tips: Less experienced athletes should focus on technical consistency instead of load. Experienced athletes should try for a new record by the fourth or fifth set. Focus on excellent technique on every set.  If you’re a beginner, focus on mechanics instead of loading. The last rep of each set should feel challenging, but you should be able to complete it without any degradation in technique.

5 rounds for time of:
200-meter farmers carry
20 deficit push-ups, hands on kettlebells
10 push jerks

RX:
Men use 2 – 53lb kettlebells for the farmers carry and push jerks.
Women use 2 – 35lb. kettlebells for the farmers carry and push jerks.

SCALED:
Men use 25-lb. kettlebells for the farmers carry and push jerks.
Women use 15-lb. kettlebells for the farmers carry and push jerks

Scaling Tips: Choose a load that allows you to complete the farmers carry and push jerks unbroken during the first round. Use a push-up variation that allows you to complete the first round in 2 sets or less. During the later rounds, expect to use multiple sets to complete each movement. If you are performing 2 reps or less at any time, consider modifying the movements further.

12 minute ladder of:
1 kipping muscle-up
5 medicine-ball cleans
2 kipping muscle-ups
10 medicine-ball cleans
3 kipping muscle-ups
15 medicine-ball cleans
4 kipping muscle-ups
20 medicine-ball cleans
Etc., adding one muscle-up and 5 med ball cleans each round.

Rx= 20/14 med ball
Scaled=14/10 med ball

Tips: If you can’t do a muscle up yet, use a variation of the transition drill and discuss with the coach for additional tips for movement.  If you can do kipping muscle-ups, try to challenge yourself with strict reps. If you can do strict muscle-ups, try adding load. Use your warm-up to find a load for the medicine-ball cleans that allows you to complete 15 unbroken reps with flawless technique.

During your warm-up, experiment with foot position in the transition drill. Moving your feet away from you will increase the difficulty. Use a position that is challenging but allows for smooth execution. During either your warm-up or cool-down, consider including push-ups and ring rows to begin developing the necessary strength for the muscle-up.
