EMOM for 10 Minutes

[Odd] :30 Seconds of Strict Pull-Ups
[Even] :30 Seconds of L-Sit

Today’s skill work is 10 intervals of :30 seconds work and 30 seconds rest of strict pull-ups and L-Sit, alternating between each movement. The strict pull-up is one the best upper body strengthening exercises that we have and should not be taken lightly. Take as many sets as you need to and complete as many reps as possible during that time.  If you are someone who does not quite have a strict pull-up yet try to progress to a lighter band or attempt jumping pull-ups with a slow lower down.  Scale the L-Sit to a method that lets you keep your legs elevated for more than a few seconds.  You can try them with one leg tucked or both.  Working on the floor and essentially performing a seated leg raise may be the best option if you are just starting out with this movement.  The closer your hands are to your feet, the hard the movement will be.  Athletes who have established this skill can make the movement more difficult by using the P-Bars or rings.

 

WOD

For time
21-15-9
Thrusters 95/65 lb
Kettlebell Swings 32/24 kg

Workout notes: This workout should fall into the sprint category so choose a load that you can perform at least 10-15 thrusters in a set.  If you are starting with a weight that you have to significantly break up initially, you may have gone a little too heavy.  Make sure to control those barbells to the ground when finishing!
