5 Rounds:

15/12 Cal Ski Erg

10 Chest2Bar Pull Ups


Time Cap: 16 Min

Find a good, steady pace on the Ski Erg, then shake the arms out and take a few deep breaths as you walk over to the pull up bar.  If 10 Chest2Bar pull ups is not in your tool box, hit a manageable chunk, come off the bar, shake out, and go again.  Try to aim for either 5, drop, shake out, and 5 more, or 5,3,2.  Goal is, never hit failure on the pull ups.

Scaling Options:

Ski Erg -> Resistance Band Ski Erg
