Workout of the Day

FITNESS
A. 10 minutes rope climb skill

Training notes:
-Work on developing the ability to wrap legs – then work on jumping up and quickly hooking the rope.

B. 3 sets:
10 double KB standing presses
-Rest 30s
1 min banded tricep push-downs @ 1111 tempo
-Rest 30s
10 double KB bent over rows
-Rest 30s
1 min banded face pulls @ 1111 tempo
-Rest 30s

Training notes:
-Pay attention to the tempo on the band work – goal is to maintain solid time under tension.
-This should be difficult from a muscle endurance perspective. Be disciplined with the rest since you shouldn’t be fully recovered between sets.

Record weights used and reps completed in training notes.

C. 5 rounds:
10 Russian KB swings
15 ball slams
20 wall balls
*10 minute cap.

Training notes:
-This is a heavier variation of Open workout 11.5.
-The difficulty of these weights will be pretty variable – adjust your pace accordingly.
-Toes-to-bar may also be a bottleneck by the end – if you anticipate that happening, think about how to pace the first part of the workout relative to that.

Record total time.
