Skill

EMOM FOR 10 Minutes
[odd] :30 Seconds of Strict Pull-Ups or Supine Ring Rows
[even] :30 Seconds Push-Ups

You’ll have 5 rounds at each station to work for a total of 30 seconds.  It’s probably not a good idea to go for a max set early on so work in as many sets as you need to for the full 30 seconds and then transition to the next station. Use the most difficult movement standard that you can and don’t worry about stringing together reps if it means sacrificing the mechanics of each movement.

 

WOD

21-15-9
Deadlift 225/155lbs
Box Jump 24/20″

Workout notes: One of our favorites, the beautiful deadlift/box jump combo! These two movements do compliment each other and make a great strength training pair.  The deadlift taxes the posterior chain so you can think of this as a pushing and pulling combo for legs but of course you will need a strong grip and stable midline. We always emphasize lumbar posture when we talk about deadlifts and we won’t stop now. Concentrate on setting your back before each lift and actively hinge at the hips rather than extreme flexion of the back.  When you are scaling this workout think about a weight that is less than around 70% of your 1RM.  Going unbroken isn’t required of course but you will want to be able to perform sets of your chosen weight when fresh. Repeat workout!
