Eleven feet – Tue 1.02.18

 In W.O.D.

Strength:  Shoulder Press 5-5-5-5-5

Conditioning: AMRAP in 10:00:
– 20 Wall Ball shots (20-25#/14-20# to 11′)
– 10 Strict Pull Ups

Tips and Scaling:
• The Wall Ball

Scaling this WOD
Select a wall-ball option that challenges you but allows you to perform at least 7 consecutive reps during the warm-up. Scale the load and height accordingly. For the pull-ups, strive to perform each round in less than 3 sets. Watch The Wall Ball from the CrossFit Journal prior to starting.

Option 1
Complete as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes of:
16 wall-ball shots
8 banded strict pull-ups

Men use 14-lb. ball to 10-ft. target
Women use 10-lb. ball to 10-ft. target

If you are unable to complete the first round of wall balls in 2 sets, consider reducing the load further. Experiment with the pull-ups prior to the workout. Choose a band that allows you to complete 8-12 unbroken pull-ups in your warm-up. If you lose the ability to perform a single pull-up at any point, complete the remainder of the workout with ring rows.

Option 2
Complete as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes of:
16 wall-ball shots
8 strict pull-ups

Men use 20-lb. ball to 10-ft. target
Women use 14-lb. ball to 10-ft. target

Practice performing the wall-ball shots to a higher target during the warm-up. If you are able to consistently throw to the 11-ft. target, consider attempting it during the workout. If at any point you become unable to complete a single pull-up, switch to ring rows for the remainder of that set.
