Coaching tips

17 May Posted by in Helpful Tips | Comments

Really emphasize the ‘glide kip’ style of bar muscle up with as little dip at the top as possible. No chicken wings! If you chicken wing, stop the set or rest long enough to ensure you don’t do another one. If you are only good for 1-2 bar muscle ups per round, do them at the start, then finish with some jumping pull ups and toes to bar (don’t just default to the Health option for all rounds). Alternate arms as desired on the overhead lunges. If you legs start getting heavy in the later rounds, make sure you take your time on the box jumps to avoid and mishaps. That said, push the intensity when possible on the kettlebell swings through the jumps because of the 1 min rests. Total time does not include final rest (as always).
