Coach's Notes. Standard start times of 0545, 0630, and 0800. Warm up prior and be ready to 3, 2, 1...Go!

WOD: Your triceps are going to blow up on this one. If you know how to kip with ring dips, then start early. Ensure that your shoulder touches the rings at the bottom of each rep while also ensuring you achieve full lock out at the top.  Put last months pistol work to good use and try to push your self to go Rx through a relatively low rep count (6 per leg).

Scaling: Use a band for the rings dips. Grab a CF veteran and have them show you how to loop a red or purple band through the rings to assist you on the way up. For the pistols, ensure you roll out your ankles and hips to maximize your range of motion (ROM).  Watch both videos for scaling options and tips.
Skill: Similar to last week, use the rep scheme given to build body awareness with the rope.  Work on achieving a good "flick" start with the wrists to get the DU machine going.  Check out the double under video here for tips.

Did 5 rds + 3. I don't know about anyone else, but the biggest detriment for me was "strap burn" on the rings.


8 + 16 (jumping ring dips)

I had to sub ring dips in the 5th shoulders and hip flxors a re thrashed!
