Turkish Situps
Complete the following in the least amount of sets possible:
50 Handstand Pushups
100 Pullups
This is not for time

Post Turkish Situp Loads and Workout Time to Comments
For the strength segment, perform 3 Turkish Situps on each side with as much weight as possible.  You do not need to use the same load on each side.  Take your time and don’t rush.  Take caution getting the KB in and out of position…watch the rotator cuff!  If you’re up for it, try doing two hands at once (see video below) — but don’t be dumb.

For the conditioning workout, you can break up each movement as you wish, but attempt in as few sets as possible.  You can also alternate between movements as necessary.  This workout is not timed.  Rest as needed between sets.

Two Handed Turkish Situps

    Worked up to 44 lbs x 3 one-handed, both sites on the Turkish Sit Ups. Then monkeyed with a couple of sets two-handed. Worked up to 40# x 3 reps. Those are fun! METCON -- used a 30# platform for HSPU, Took 6 sets to get through the 50 reps. Started with a blue band for Pull ups. It took me 13 sets to get all 100 reps. Was averaging sets of 10 through 5 rds, then my grip failed. Added a thin purple band around 75 reps to go the distance. Great WOD, Dave. I walked in this morning remarking how tired my legs were from yesterday's squats. Now my shoulders and arms are smoked. Great balance. Very thorough. ;-)
