WOD:

EMOM for 18:

Min 1 – 10 Alternating Pistols

Min 2 – 45 Sec Handstand Hold

Min 3 – 3 Muscle Ups (Bar or Ring)

Want to see good, clean reps in each EMOM.  There is plenty of time each round, so don’t sacrifice form for speed.  And in each movement, a tight core will make things go MUCH better.  If you come down on the HS hold before 45 seconds, get back up on the wall as quick as possible, but at the 45 sec mark, come off the wall.

 

Scaling Options:

Pistols ->  Banded Pistols* -> Pistols to target

Handstand Hold -> Pike Push Up hold off box -> Plank

Mus -> 3 Pull ups/3 Ring dips per rep -> Banded Ring Muscle Up transitions* -> Jumping Bar Muscle Ups**

Video courtesy of Gymnastics WOD.  Demo for Banded Ring Muscle Up Transitions.  If you already have the strength to string multiple pull ups and ring dips together, but still can’t get a muscle up, work these.

Video courtesy of ZOAR Fitness.  Demo of jumping bar muscle ups.  Same principal applies here.  If you are able to string multiple pull ups and dips together, but can’t get the bar MUs, work this to get the body used to get the movement patterns down.

 

Cool Down:

Oly Wall Sit* – 3 Min
