Post Rounds For Each AMRAP to Comments
For the skill segment, perform 50 strict parallette shoot throughs.  You should pause in each position for a 1-count.  Do not try and finish all 50 reps as quickly as possible.  Focus on making each movement precise and perfect!

For the conditioning workout, scale the Back Squat load to 40% 1RM if bodyweight is too heavy.  Run the 800m like you’re being chased by a hungry tiger.

    Very up and down day. With the recent weight loss following the standard process cleanse under Coach/Dr. Stew's direction, I can now curl myself up tight enough to execute parallette shoot throughs! Very cool! They're not text book, but they're clean. On the flip side, I had to check my ego and drop from 115(Rx) to 95# between sections of the METCON. By the end of the first round, I had NOTHING left for push presses at the RX weight. Balls slams as always were a treat! Great WOD, completely smoked me.

    Great job Paul! Keep it up man. I did 3x5 supersets of weighted ring dips and weighted ring pullups. Did all 3 sets with a 40# KB for the dips and a 25# KB for the pullups. The pullups were much harder than I thought. Did the metcon with exactly 80% Press 1RM which was 120#. Was able to complete 4 rounds + 1 rep on the first amrap and then six rounds + 1 rep on the 2nd amrap. s.m.o.k.e.d. Then worked on pistols: every min on min for 10 mins, did 6 pistols. Then finished with 5 sets of max squat hold. All were between 30-40 seconds. Thank you Ashley Denton for playing some Silverchair!

    Thanks Troie. That was some sick looking work on the rings. Nice work. Realized I failed to post my METCON rounds. 4 complete rounds on the first AMRAP. 5 Rounds and the push presses on the second AMRAP.
