Just like last time, the goal is here getting an very violent hip extension, then driving our bodies down under the bar FAST, as we PUNCH to lock out the arms overhead as we land in the split. Focus on the fast drop and the punch to avoid having to press more than needed on the catch.
50 Double Unders
100m Dual KB Overhead Walk (35/25)
Video courtesy of Lindy Barber. Quick demo of the Dual KB Overhead Walk. To make this WOD successful, you’ll need to focus on relaxing the shoulders during the double unders. Otherwise, the shoulders may get overly fatigued prior to the OH carry, making it much harder to go unbroken (suggest no more than one break in the 100M) on that piece. So, to do that, don’t aim to go super fast on your rope, rather find the rhythm that allows you to successfully get the dub and not trip up on your rope. The harder you try to speed up the rope, the more the shoulders get taxed.
