Post Bench Loads and Total Reps Completed to Comments 
Complete the 3 Rounds of the CrossFit Warmup before class begins.  During the skill segment, perform 3 sets of Deadhang pullups. Determine the number of reps for each round by taking 70% of your 1 set max.  Rest 2-3 minutes between sets.  Follow this progression scale if you don’t have Deadhang Pullups:  Barbell inverted rows – Ring rows – Barbell/ring rows with weighted vest/chains – Single-arm ring rows – Pullups.

For the strength segment, for the Wide Grip Bench follow the reps and % progression up to 4 singles at 90% 1RM.  You can work quickly through the warmups, but rest roughly 3-4 minutes between the 3 work sets.  These are going to be pretty heavy, but you should not be missing reps. Your grip should be wider than your normal bench press grip.  This will be a bit different for everyone since everyone is a different size.  No one should be any wider than pinkies on the outer rings of the bar, however.

For the conditioning workout, perform a total of 12 Tabata Intervals (20 seconds on, 10 seconds off) alternating movements each interval.  Scale this WOD up as follows:  Thrusters at 52/35 and weighted situps (30/20lb slamball held overhead).

ENDURANCE WORKOUT tonight at 6pm!
