Chin-ups (Underhand/Normal Width)
Push-ups (Chest to Deck/Lockout:ROM)
Walking Lunges (alt.R/L)
Notes: Double-unders or Single-unders is up to the individual athlete’s desire to improve on or acquire their Speed Rope abilities; choose the warm-up movements appropriately. Walking Lunges are 8 repetitions regardless of max rep sets or 3 sets x 8 rep options.
Impact/Focus: Press 5-5-5+
Work through the following percentage based sets outlined below, using 1RM x .9 to establish a submaximal starting weight.
Percentages for sets and reps are derived from this number.
The final set is a “+” set which means each athlete will attempt to execute as many additional repetitions as possible beyond the initial rep load prescribed.
5 x 40%
5 x 50%
3 x 60%

Ten Rounds for time as follows
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 x Ring Push-ups
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 x Ring Row
5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5 x Box Jumps (24/20”)
Notes: All athletes should be stepping down from Box Jumps with one leg at a time for the following month to six weeks of plyometric/vertical building training. Scale Ring Push-ups to Regular full ROM Push-ups (see cf.com if unclear) and scale further to ‘snake’ or ‘knees’ version Push-ups as necessary for individual athletes. Set-up Ring Rows/Ring Push-ups to facilitate the most challenging Plank position/Hollow hold position possible. Athletes generally find that suspending the rings level with the edge of a plyo box or even a KB Handle to multiply the efficacy experienced through this particular training evolution. Too belt fed? Eh.
