9 sets of 3 reps (3 grips)
3 sets of 8 reps
3 Rounds For Time:
25 KB High Pulls (70/52)
5 Muscle Ups
Post Bench Loads and Workout Time to Comments
For the strength segment, the goal is to move the weight as quickly as possible for your three reps across all 9 sets, particularly on the way up. Rep speed should be roughly 1 second down and 1 second up. If you cannot perform all of your reps at this speed then you need to use a lighter load…regardless of whether you’re at 65% or not. Perform three sets “wide” grip – pinkies on the outside line. Three sets “medium” grip – thumbs distance from the middle knurling. Three sets “narrow” grip – index finger just off the smooth part of the middle of the bar.
For the conditioning workout, perform “swinging” KB high pulls (see video below at 2:19). Start as a KB swing at as it approaches the top you’re pulling the bell horizontally towards your chin with your elbows high (don’t hit your mouth). Make sure you leave the ground on your Burpee jumps. Sub banded or jumping Muscle Ups.
