WOD: 8-22-12

Christian crushing Pull Ups on his Swedish vacation

Skill: Muscle-Up

WOD: 10 rounds for time of:

5 Thrusters (95/65)
1 Muscle Up


There you have it.  22 days into the Muscle Up Manic Month and they have finally come up in the workout.  Today’s workout is not particularly spicy, but it will certainly remind you how much you potentially use your legs when doing a Muscle Up.  If you still do not have a Muscle Up, you can scale to a Bar Muscle Up (for now) and if you have neither, there will be various method of scaling.  If you can consistently get your Muscle Up, you will enjoy this workout.  If you can get one or two for sure and then end up struggling through the next rep, you would be better off scaling then spending minutes on a single rep.  Please re-read that sentence until you accept what it is saying.

In other news, I realize that I was not very clear when talking about the Strength programming.  When I said 100 Back Squats, I meant 100 UNBROKEN Back Squats.  And you only have a single attempt at it.  So if you unrack the bar and only get 32 before you place it back on the run (you went too heavy), the test is ovah!  Sorry for any confusion.  Please re-read that sentence until you accept what it is saying.

Hence the fact that this is a muscular/mental endurance test,
