8 Min AMRAP x 2

So the cat started crying loudly this morning and I didn’t hear him until Niko got up to see if he was OK.  I looked at the clock and turns out I didn’t set my alarm!  Perhaps that’s why Feynman (the cat) started meowing this morning – he knew I had to get up!  I was up 5 minutes late, but managed to get to Craic in time.

We warmed up by doing pistol practice and muscle-ups practice.  Good news was that I could get down in my pistols, but bad news was that I couldn’t get myself back up.  Grrrr.  We went to muscle ups and I really need to work on my core strength and shoulder strength.  I think that I will probably add a daily sit-up / core workout to my routine.

The WoD was:

8min AMRAP
RX+ 3 Muscle ups
6 Pistols (alternating)

RX 2 Pullups
4 Push-ups
8 Squats

rest 10mins + repeat8min AMRAP

Goal is same score on both AMRAPs

I decided that Rx+ and Rx was too easy 😉 – so I scaled by doing jumping pull-ups, chest to ab mat push-ups, and air squats (which, obviously, I didn’t have to scale).  After talking to Jarrod, I decided that I was going to do jumping pull-ups instead of band assisted.  The jumping pull-ups would help me more with conditioning, while the band-assisted would have enabled me to do more reps and move through faster.  Definitely the harder option for me, but pull-ups are the biggest goat for me – so I wanted to challenge myself.  As I got towards the end of both sets, I had a bit more trouble using my legs and getting my chin up to the bar. 

Final Scores: 10 / 10 + 2
