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

Main WOD: Keep your abs engaged and armpits facing forward (active shoulders) on the overhead squats. Make sure that you hit the bottom of the squat (hip crease below knee crease). OHS weight is relatively low, so make every attempt to go unbroken.  It will cost you about 15 seconds every time you break and try to get the bar back overhead. Use the 200m run as active recovery.  CTB Pull Ups are also a low rep count...take a deep breath before hopping on the bar and go unbroken.

Scaling: Reduce the OHS weight to 65/45# so that you can get all 7 reps unbroken on the first round. Don't have C2B Pull Ups?  Substitute regular pull ups, jumping pull ups, or banded pull ups at 2:1.

Optional Strength Work: By reducing the number of reps per set this week, we are expecting to get more weight on the bar. However, the weight selected should also allow you to execute touch and go reps (T&G).
