Choose pull up option – Mon 3.12.18

 In W.O.D.

You don’t have to always do what the Rx’d or scaling options say.  It’s not possible to fit all the options available to scale a workout in three different groups.  For today’s WOD, choose a pull-up option that allows you to complete at least 5 unbroken reps each round of tabata.

Skill:  Warm Up and movement review

Conditioning: For max reps at each station:
Tabata chest-to-bar pull-ups
Rest 1 minute
Tabata sit-ups
Rest 1 minute
Tabata seated shoulder presses
Rest 1 minute
Tabata hip extensions
Rest 1 minute
Tabata jumping back squats

The Tabata interval is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for eight intervals.

Men: 75-lb. presses and squats
Women: 55-lb. presses and squats

Scroll for scaling options.

Post total reps for each exercise to comments.

Scaling
As fatigue sets in, it will be difficult to perform several exercises in this Tabata workout unbroken for the full 20 seconds in each round. Modify the movements and loads so you can complete the first few rounds of each interval without needing to break, particularly in the pull-ups, presses and squats.

Tabata sit-ups
Rest 1 minute
