Rx: 40-25
S: 30 – 15
B: 20-10

* Scale accordingly to maintain consistency of good mechanics, while applying intensity through AMRAP.  Ask your coach for help.



Rest about 15-20 min. In that time, practice snap to hollow and snap to arch on ground. During this time, complete 3 sets of 1 min of max rep wall balls 20/14. Your goal here is max rep, unbroken. Play with foot placement, arm motion, etc, to maximize reps and efficiency. Maybe you can squeeze out a few more reps, but it smokes your shoulders more, or perhaps you feel better, etc. Take note of these things.


When cycling pull ups, especially butterfly, we don’t want to “pop” the hips as much to get to or above the bar. When you pop your hips, you initiate the arch too early and it throws off rhythm and/or leads to excessive arching. We want to snap to hollow then press down with straight arms, before pulling to get chin over the bar. Emphasis on the hollow, not the arch.


After resting:
10 Minute AMRAP of:
15/12 cal bike
15 dumbbell snatch same weight
15 supine grip rows on the adjustable pull up bar, or a barbell.
