A. Just used the time to work on low rings with feet on a box, bar muscle ups with a band. And handstand walking and holds. No real progress, other then falling on my hip and elbow on the concrete.

B. Done. Scaled to kipping HSPU to build capacity.

Row was 30 – 32 sec

HSPU – UB,

So much shoulders!! Mine were so destroyed
that I had to modify a few things today:

A: Did Bar MU instead of rings because they would be a little easier on the shoulders:
Set 1: 15
2: 12
3 10

Handstand walk and Pistols UB

B: Did Kipping HSPU instead of Strict to rest the shoulders. Everything else RX

A. Did low ring MU progression, handstand wall runs and pistols with a band for support. All tough and all good practice!
B. Done with pike pushups. I agree with everyone else, it was nice to have a workout that got me moving but didn’t pound me into the ground on a Friday! Happy weekend everyone!

Slept in today and snuck this one in at lunch:
A. Mainly focused on HS Walk and L-sit. 15 ft is manageable every time on HS Walk, just trying to get the 180 turn down.

B. Done Rx, very manageable, especially compared to Monday’s nonsense. Last set of 15 SHSPU took some willpower.

Great prescription for my dead legs from yesterday! Have a great weekend everyone.

A. MUs: 10, 7, 10
HS walking uphill driveway: meh, better best – I did get the 10m in but quality was iffy with lots of restarts
Pistols: 20, 20, 20

B. Subbed 300m airdyne for the row and HSPUs were 14, 12, 10, 9.
Box jump overs were fine rounds 1 and 2 but had to scale to 5 stepovers 10 jump overs on 3 and 4. 30 sec leaning rest on rings were steady.

C. Ripstik practice with son for 30 mins

Uphill? What’s next, pylons and parallel bars? Great job man. It’s amazing how the smallest change in conditions (e.g. grass, sand, obstacles, slope) can make such as difference. (Luke)

it’s only a very slight incline but it does alter the movement significantly in my opinion. The other alternative is to work on 180 degree turns like @disqus_ur8znJU3mm:disqus … but I’d rather commit time to skill development outside of wod time.

From Yesterday:

A. E5mx5 – Front Squat x 2
215/225/230/235/250

B. “Karen” 8:45 Never done this one before. Thanks for the advice Libby! This was rough, but doing 18-17-16, etc. made it doable.

Prescription said to start at 70%, I did DOG in the first 4 sets then switched to crossed grip, also no belt. i didn’t really feel like going all out on this so I wasn’t seeking huge numbers and stayed around my 80% range for the finish. B) AMRAP 18′: – 20 deadlifts 102.5 kgs – 10 jumping C2B – 20 cals row – 10 jumping C2B Got 3 Rounds and 10 reps Rx called for 15 C2Bs, tried to pull myself up to… Read more »

A. Tight on time this morning so worked on some MU – 2 relatively strict MU focusing on staying in the false grip. Did 5 sets. Then wrists were all tore up.. does anyone use any wrap or tape for muscle ups? Or do I just need to spend a day a week on the rings in false grip to build up some tougher skin? B. E1MOM (4rds) 1. 200 meter row 2. 2 strict HSPU + 4 HSPU 3. 15 BJO 4. 1 ring MU to 30 sec in top position in hollow rock Pushed hard on the row.… Read more »

I think more time in the things will help though your skin. I’ve seen some wrap the rings with tape but I see others who don’t. May come down to personal preference

I agree with James and Nathan about time helping with the false grip skin irritation, it did with me. At first just holds were so painful but they’re alot better now. Stick with it! Nice work today, I like the add-on in B.4 btw

Thanks! I actually don’t know what B4 is so I guessed! Is what I did front leaning rest? Guess I better check since I did not take time to Google this am. I will def try to add in a few min of ring work each week to keep getting more comfortable. Its amazing how much easier the MU is in false grip.

I think what you did would be called full support on rings, not as much focus on core. Not a bad idea though I think it fit right in

Good morning, everyone…woke up this morning and felt like the sheets kicked my butt during the night. Anyway…

A. Worked on MU progression only
B1. About :45
B2. Off 24″ box 15/15/15/15 all UB until last round 8/7.
B3. About :40. All jumps (as opposed to steps ups). I only step down now.
B4. Done

Have a great weekend!

Be sure to add negatives to your MU progression training. Try to get at least a :04 negative and try to slow down during the transition. This will build strength up quickly

I will take that advice. I can actually do muscle ups. I am working on strict MUs. Using momentum is easy. Moving dead weight, not so much!

A.1: strict rmu transitions with band: 5 reps with smallest one immediately followed by 5 reps with a bigger band
A.2: HS practice facing wall trying to break off and stay balanced: not much progress here
A.3; alt pistols x 20 reps slow and controlled
B.1: rx under 40s
B.2: shspu feet on 20’’ box: 15-12-12-15
B.3: rx step off (30s)
B.4: rx
C. Emom x 5 min; strict hspu 5s negatives x3 reps kipping back up in between

Did last nights front squats

145kg for 5 doubles. They felt hard.

B.
Scaled down to 10 strict HSPU.

Completed.

Rowed at 1:42 pace, in about 41 seconds each round
HSPU in 5/5
Box jump overs – in about 40 seconds
30 second front leaning rest – easy enough.

This wasn’t too bad.

Morning everyone, happy Friday! Area to do B was taken up by a class. Went bouldering last night, always seem to manage to do that before an upper body gymnastics day ha.

A.
6 Muscle up transitions from L sit with black band. Pull feeling stronger each session.
8 DB strict press at 20kg
20 Pistols to a low box – lowest i’ve gone with these, feel like unsupported could happen soon.

B. Kickups to handstand practice, nearly have 2 feet to the wall!

C. Superset of chinese rows and back extensions.
