WOD

  1. 10 rounds for reps of:

20s Pistols, 10s rest

20s Double Unders, 10s rest

  1. Spend 30 minutes on SLIPS

At Home WOD

A2.  Practice Front and Back Scales between sets.

Weight for Snatch complex is dowel (broomstick).  The goal today is not load (obviously), but speed and execution of movement, and positioning.  If your doing the WOD (it’s actually an At Home WOD as well, assuming you have a skipping rope) post reps per movement per round and all totals to comments.  

Coach’s notes:

For the At Home WOD, post comments on speed and positioning and notes and times for scales to comments
