Coaching Tips: Go for larger sets on the first few rounds, then settle into a pace with breaks if needed. If you need to rest, it is better to break it up 5 pull ups, 5 wall ball, rest, then 5 wall ball, 5 pull ups, rest (rather than resting between movements). Use a lot of hip drive to save the shoulders a bit. Keep the pull ups ‘tight’ and don’t get sloppy (breaking through the midline and swinging your feet really far back so it looks like you are going to kick yourself in the back of the head).
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 60s plank, 30 cal row, 3 rounds OR 3 sets of 12 single arm bench press in a superset with 12 glute ham raises
