- Skill and Gymnastics:
Every 2 minutes, for 18 minutes:
1. Muscle-Ups x Max Reps in 45 seconds
(OR 3 Rolls to Candlestick + Low Ring Muscle Up Progression x 3-4 reps)
2. Handstand Walk x 10 meters
(use partner assist or Handstand Wall Runs if you don’t have handstand walks yet)
3. Alternating Pistols x 16-20 reps
(if you’re proficient, add weight with a kettlebell)
Every minute, on the minute, for 24 minutes (6 sets of each):
Minute 1 – Run 200m/Row 150 Meters
Minute 2 – 15 Kettlebell Swings (32/24 kg)
Minute 3 – 10 Thrusters (50/35 kgs)
Minute 4 – 12 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
Take 15-20 minutes to find your 1-RM Snatch
Every minute, on the minute, for 10 minutes:
8 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
Rules of “Commitment”:
*The load you select must stay the same throughout the 10 minutes – you cannot increase or decrease the load.
**You are only allowed two snatch attempts in each minute.
***Score your total load successfully lifted. E.g. 185 x 2, 185 x 2, 185 x 1.F = 925
Why “Commitment”? – because everything is easy in the beginning; the question is what can you commit to and follow through on no matter how difficult it gets.
Rest until fully recovered, and then…
