STRENGTH

OTM 10

  • Even Minutes: Overhead Squat x 6
  • Odd Minutes: Chest to Bar Pull-up x 5-10

Notes: Take barbell from ground for overhead squats – choose weight that is challenging but doable for 5 sets of 6 reps.  Can full snatch first rep.  Scale chest to bar reps as needed as well as pull-up variation (i.e. chest to bar –> strict pull-up –> kipping pull-up –> ring row).

  • Hand Release Push-up x 15

Notes: Record farmer carry weight and total time.  Break up reps as needed to keep the reps quality on ring dips (i.e. shoulder must touch top of rings at bottom and elbows must come to full extension at the top).
