Scaling this WOD
This workout includes gymnastics skills that demand body awareness and control. Challenge yourself to practice “next level” skills relative to your capacity.

Beginner
5 attempts at each of the following:
30 ft. broad jump in as few jumps as possible
3 ring rows as slow as possible
Max set of push-ups
Rest as needed between the attempts.

Use this workout as an opportunity to practice regular push-ups, do as many as you can and then switch to knee pushups to get more reps. Practice slow ring rows or, attempt one regular pull-up and then switch to ring rows for the next two.

Intermediate
5 attempts at each of the following:
50 ft. broad jump in as few jumps as possible
3 pull-ups as slow as possible
Max set of press to handstands
Rest as needed between attempts.

Substitute presses to handstand for the freestanding handstand push-ups. If you are unable to execute a press to handstand, move to the wall for strict HSPU’s. Experiment to find the most challenging, yet successful scaling option.
