This week will begin with a little longer EMOM.  Our goal is movement efficiency in some not-so common movements.  The work/rest ratio will be roughly :30/:30. On the weighted pull ups, look to either hold a plate/KB/DB between the feet or in a belt.

Scaling Options:

DB weight -> 35/25 -> as needed (Elite – 70/50)

Plate weight -> 15/10 -> as needed (Elite – GHD sit ups)

Weight pull ups -> strict bodyweight pull ups -> Buddha Pull Ups

Cool Down:

Kneeling Lat Stretch – 1 Min per side


Banded Bully Stretch – 1 Min per side
