This is a repeat from Wednesday, July 19. We sought after a moderate lift at each movement that day, associating some loading with these movements. That was our baseline. Let’s aim to build upon that today, looking for a heavy at each movement. Not a max, but a heavy.

Deadlifts (135/95)(135/125)(225/155)

Kipping Handstand Pushups

If you are not completing HSPU today, complete 21 pushups per round. We are looking to stay with the gymnastic component, with the athlete choosing the appropriate level of difficulty. Pike pushups, pushups to the floor, and box pushups are all strong variations to build our strength.

Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the plate and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off. Score is rounds + partial repetitions. The plate does not count as a repetition or round, only rounds of the above triplet.
