Context: Practice – Doing a more difficult variation at the earlier rounds, then having a plan to progress down to an easier version to keep up intensity.
Dynamic Warm Up Option: 400m jog or 2 min jump rope, then 3 rounds: 8 reverse lunge steps, 8 push-ups, 8 goblet squats, 8 sit ups, 8 banded good mornings, 10-20m farmer carry
Skill Practice: Spend 8 minutes working up to a challenging (80-90% effort) thruster x 3 out of the rack
Super Set: none
Metabolic Conditioning: “Mind the Wake”
Row (Health: 1000m, Athletic*: 1300m, Performance: 1500m)
then 4 rounds of:
Kipping Handstand push-ups (Health: 6 dumbbell strict press / Athletic*: 6 head to floor / Performance: 10 head to floor)
14 Russian kettlebell swings (Health: 35lbs, Athletic*: 53lbs, Performance: 70lbs)

Compare to: June 8, 2017
Coaching Tips: Take the last couple hundred meters of the row a little easier as you don’t want to be completely gassed for the handstand push-ups. Then next couple movements of the WOD are very grip intensive. Think about breaking up the toes-to-bar early (maybe even round one) if the kettlebell swings are a challenge for you.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 15 GHD sit ups, 15 wall ball, 3 rounds OR 3 sets of 15 strict toes to bar or weighted GHD sit ups in a super set with 15 weighted step ups
