Yep, today’s WOD has Knee2Elbows instead of Toe2Bars.  Don’t get it twisted, this isn’t going to be easy.  In fact, lots of people find the Knee2Elbow more difficult than the Toe2Bar due to the needed flexibility to have the knees make contact with the elbows.  Keep a good kip swing and hollow your core out, and you’ll get this!  With today’s WOD being all bodyweight stuff, know when to break in a movement.  We have a tendency to try to do such big sets on movements like these that we hit fatigue.  By hitting fatigue on any of these movements will result in you taking longer breaks to recover.  Rather, take off manageable chunks to allow you to recover a little quicker.

Scaling Options:

Air Squat -> to depth

Push-ups -> off bench (no hand-release)

Knee2Elbow -> Kipping Knee Raise -> V-Ups

Pull ups -> Buddha Pull Ups -> Ring Rows

Cool Down:
