Body/Ring Rows – max reps for three sets

Note: a farmer’s walk is performed by carrying kbells in hands with hand by your side.  Waiters walk is performed by carrying object with your hand beneath it and keeping your hand at shoulder level next to your body, just like waiters carry trays.

WOD 3 – Friday

Pendlay Row
(Check out the demo video provided by our friends at Catalyst Athletics.)
and then,

21, 15, 9 :
Handstand Push-Ups
Ring Dips

(Since none of us can do this as Rx, a good modification would be to replace the Hand stand push up with a press. choose a weight that can be pressed x 21, but keep in mind that you shouldn’t be able to press it 21 times without stopping.  That would be far to too light.  Or perhaps the stronger among us could start with HSPU and then switch to the press.)

WOD 4 – Saturday

Weighted Pull up

Three rounds for time of:
400 Meter Run
21 Kettlebell Swings (24/16 kg)
