Skill

EMOM for 10 Minutes
Straight set of Chest to Bar Pull-Ups

For this skill work you will be working on maintaining a set of chest to bar pull-ups for 10 rounds(:30 seconds max). If you are new to the skill you should be working the cadence and timing of your swing so you can link repetitions together.  That usually means working on small sets of 2-5 for each round. Leave yourself plenty of rest so you can lower the intensity and keep this as skill work.   If you are still working on building the strength to support kipping swings and pull-ups work for about 30 seconds performing jumping pull-ups with a slow lower down. If you are able to string together 10 c-kip pull-ups talk to a coach about learning the butterfly pull-up!

WOD

AMRAP in 10 Minutes
10 Deadlift 225/155 lb
100M Run

Workout notes: We have a very simple classic couplet today.  For the deadlift we’re looking for a weight that is in the 60% range of your 1RM.  Going unbroken is not required but you should be able to perform each round of 10 in 2-3 sets.  Remember your setup before every set on the deadlift.  Set your back and keep it static, bending only at the hip and knees! The run will act as a little bit of recovery for you but push the pace and try to move quickly so you don’t lose too much time getting out to the wall and back.
