WOD Tips:

-Today’s strength-work is focused primarily on the upper body. We are going to be focusing on developing strength, mobility, and stability in 2 areas where a lot of us

need work: the overhead position and the top of a ring row/pull up. Start light enough with these where you can confidently get 6 reps the first set. Each round, you

can add weight on the strict press and make the ring rows a little more challenging. The 2 second pause in each movement is the most important so challenge

yourself as much as you can while staying within the rep range and not losing the full pause.

-Up and Over is another short to moderate length workout where you should be able to keep a very high intensity throughout. Try to challenge yourself on the ring

dips/muscle ups and you can even scale the reps if 5 muscle ups or 10/7 ring dips is too much, before scaling the movement. A good goal for this workout is to be

under 9 minutes, or about 1 minute per movement. This means the snatch should be at a weight that you can do 5-10 reps consistently with.
