Today will be an interesting spin on a classic benchmark, “Angie”.  Normally, “Angie” is done finishing all 100 reps of one movement before going to the next one.  Today, see if breaking them into 5-rep chunks allows you to finish this WOD faster.  While the breaking up of reps and constantly switching movements will keep you from hitting movement fatigue, make sure you don’t take too long to transition from one movement to the next.

Scaling Options:

Pull Ups -> Buddha Pull ups -> Ring Rows -> Table Row

Push up -> go to knees on the up

Cool Down:

Kneeling Lat Stretch – 1 Min per side

 

Cobra pose – 2 min
