Skill

Two rounds of Tabata alternating between

Hollow Rocks
Super Man Hold

The Tabata interval is 8 rounds of 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off for a total of 4 minutes.  We’re doubling that for this skill work so we’re doing a total of 8 minutes. Alternate movements every interval and be sure to focus on maintaining a rigid core and focus on creating flexion or extension with your torso and not just bending at the hips or raising your legs up.

WOD

10 Rounds for reps of

30 seconds of two arm dumbbell thrusters 50/35 lb
30 seconds of rest
30 seconds of double unders
30 seconds of rest

Workout notes: Today’s workout features two difficult movements performed on 30 second intervals. Your workout will be scored by your total number of repetitions completed across all 10 rounds.  Double under experts could possibly game the workout by not going hard on the thrusters but that is not the intent of this workout!  Use this opportunity to go hard on both movements! The prescribed two arm dumbbell thrusters will feel quite a bit heavier than the equivalent load performed with a barbell so be sure to test the weight you plan on using for the workout and make sure you can perform a moderate sized set while fresh.  If you are new to double unders this would be a good time to stick with them for the entire workout and get yourself an “Rx” score on the board regardless of your skill level.  Go hard and have fun!
