This Week’s Conditioning

Option 1
7 rounds for time of:
7 Box Jumps, 30″/24″
7 Slapping Push-ups

These are high box jumps, so be sure to go higher than your usual “metcon box jump height” (which is typically 24″/18″). Scaling order for push-ups (from hardest to easiest) is: slapping, clapping, regular, bar).

Compare to 2016.04.21.

Option 2
5 rounds for time of:
10 1-arm DB Hang Power Snatch, 40#/25# (5L, 5R)
30 sec Chin-Over-Bar Hold
10 1-arm DB Hang Power Snatch, 40#/25# (5L, 5R)
60 sec Plank

13 min cap

Compare to 2016.04.18.

Option 3
Sled Pyramid – 4, 5, or 6 tiers
Go up and down a 4, 5, or 6 tier “sled pyramid” – rest as needed. The distance for each round is 80 m (a down-back on the 40m course). Rest as needed.

For example, Bob does the following (4 tiers):
Round 1: Empty sled
Round 2: 25#
Round 3: 50#
Round 4: 75#
Round 5: 50#
Round 6: 25#
