Strength Cycle: Cycle 4 – Week 1

OTM for 6min: HSPU Interval Technique Work:
L: 5/3 Cal Row or 4/3 Cal Bike + 15sec 2-DB Overhead Hold
S: 10/7 Cal Row or 8/5 Cal Bike + 15sec Nose-and-Toes HS Hold
*Both in the minute. Shoot for around 15sec of rest each round. If partnering, have one partner “chase”, jumping on the rower/bike as soon as the first partner jumps off.
-rest 2min, then:
OTM for 6min:
Life: 2 Wall Walks or Pick a # of HSPU-Negatives and repeat it OTM. Keep it clean.
Sport: Pick # of HSPU and work on meeting the Open standard. Keep the sets small, clean, and repeatable
*Don’t overdo the OTM, becasue the WOD has a TON of HSPU. Consider working on deficit HSPU, or strict HSPU, or somehow improve your existing kipping technique.

30 AKBS – L: 53/35; S: 70/53
L: 15 HRPU or 8 HSPU; S: 15 HSPU
