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

Main WOD: This WOD presents several challenges. First, there are three sets of muscle ups; however, between each set of muscle ups are a combination of weighted (PC and PJs) and gymnastic movements (BJ and Burpees). Athletes can choose to do ring or bar muscle ups. Second, establish a reasonable pace since the exercises do not allow the athlete to recover or catch your breath. Push through and scale the WOD as necessary.

Scaling Options: Scaling is what allows the Athlete to challenge themselves while reducing risk for injury. Take Heed!!!
  • Muscle Ups: Use these two techniques to help you work on transitioning between “the pull” and “the dip”
  • Power Cleans/Push Jerks: Reduce the weight
  • Box Jumps: Reduce the box height to allow you to maintain intensity
  • Burpees: Step out to the plank position rather than thrusting your legs behind you.

This one just made me mad, after Tuesdays pull-UPS I had tender hands well ripped them wide open on this, and then since we have terrible rigs here(no straight bars or places to hang rings) I wad doing MU on pull up handles and of course caught my tshirt not once but twice on the handles on the way down ripped it both times doing MUs.. 9:15 despite my whining and feeling sorry for myself.
