Coaching Tips: Practice your kipping ring-dip ahead of time so you have the technique down. If you get stuck on ring-dips, drop the quantity of reps in the set so you can keep moving. Only go to assisted ring-dips or ring push-ups as a last resort. Keep the back flat on the dumbbell ground to overhead. Only one head of each dumbbell must to touch the ground for each rep. You can perform these as a ‘two handed snatch’ or as a ‘clean and jerk’
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 10 db bent over rows, 10 burpees, 4 minutes, OR 3 sets of 12 db bent over rows in a super set with 12 db single leg deadlifts
