Metabolic Conditioning: “Rogue Bludger”

For time. 3 rounds.

6 high box jumps (Health: 12″/20″, Athletic: 20″/24”, Performance: 24″/30”)

Scaling Guide: 6 – 10 minutes, about 2.5 minutes per round. Scale Up: 30/36in box jump, 85/135lb jerks

Coaching Tips: Take your time on the box jumps to avoid any ‘misses’. Use an efficient jerk early on to make sure your shoulders are fresh for the wall balls. Pace the wall balls on the first two rounds so that you can go right into the box jumps on the next round, but go ‘big’ on the last set to get a good score.

Super Set: 4-4-4-4-4-4-4 strict weighted ring dip or progression

Metabolic Conditioning: “Black Mamba“

For Time.  With a PARTNER, one person working while the other rests. Split work up as desired.

100 double unders (Health: 4 single unders + 1 double under attempt, 20 ‘sets’)

Scaling Guide: 8 – 12 minutes

Coaching Tips: Split up the reps to play to your strengths. If evenly matched with your partner, do small sets and switch off often. For the snatches, keep the hips low on the first pull and fight to keep an upright torso. Power snatch to overhead squat is acceptable. For the jerks, be sure to get a good dip-under to save the shoulders. Efficient double unders (arms at sides, very little knee bend if any at all), will pay off in the later sets.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 2 min max cal row or airdyne, 1 minute rest, 2 min max cal row or airdyne, OR 3 sets of 12 narrow grip chin ups in a super set with 12 single leg deadlifts

Coaching Tips: Be as efficient as possible on the rope climbs so you can hit the next portion as ‘fresh’ as possible. Reach high with the arms and then get your feet as close to your hands as possible so you can get to the top with as few ‘pull’ as necessary. Keep the chest up on the goblet squats and the weight centered on the mid foot. Push the pace on the burpees and don’t let your back hyper extend at the bottom when coming out of the push up position.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 15 ring push-ups, 15 American Kb swings, 100m run 5 minutes, OR 12 weighted ring dips in a super set with 12 Bulgarian split squats

Coaching Tips: Do some bigger set on the 21s and the 18s if you can. Break up the 15s and 12s, but go big again on the last couple rounds. Make sure you pull ups are legit (head over the bar and full extension at the bottom), and make sure you smart and not risking a hand rip. Wear knee sleeves or knee pads if you have them for the lunges. The knee must ‘kiss’ the floor every rep, and there must be full hip extension at the top.
