*start light and add weight each round so you will finish the warmup section at your starting set of todays WOD. Progress the dip to the level you will use in the metcon. if you are adding weight in the metcon, add very little here and instead focus on dialing in the technique and warming up the shoulder.
Turkish Get-up instructionMetconMetcon (Weight)A) Weighted dip (matador or ring) 3-2-2-1-1-1-1 reps
B) Bench press 3-2-2-1-1-1-1 reps

*score heaviest set of dips, bench, and tugalternate movements (A-B-C) and use spotters for the bench press.
Scaling: modify the dips to a level that each set is a challenge. today allows a great opportunity to practice more challenging levels of the dip, even if you aren’t adding weight (as slow as possible, banded matador, ring…etc). those who are not comfortable going heavy with these movements can use today to practice technique and build slowly to a weight that challenges you.News*New pull-over and hoodie designs are up and ready for pre-order at the front desk!
