WOD:

Spend 20 minutes working Muscle ups (progression)

Goal = 4xMax reps or 4×10 Jumping Muscle Ups

Video courtesy of CrossFit Dominion.  IF you are doing jumping muscle ups today, this is how I want you doing the transition piece.  I want you to land low, so your shoulder touch the rings and then push up to the top.  Don’t jump straight to the top of a muscle up.  This will help you build the strength to get out of the bottom of the dip and training your body to where you should land in a regular muscle up during the transition.

Cash Out:

Shoulder mobility stretch

Extra Credit (done on your free time):

3 Un-timed rounds :

10 Alternating pistols

10 barbell rollouts

10 Glute Ham Raises

Alright, here is a video showing the standards for movements you will see this weekend at the TactFit Games.  WOD one will be released either later Friday or first thing Saturday.  I’ll give you a hint.  There’s water involved 🙂
