“High & Dry”
Complete for time
4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4 x Handstand Push-ups
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 x Box Jumps (32/20”)
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 x KB Swings (32/24kg)

Notes: There are ten rounds in this training evolution; the first round would be 4 x HSPU + 10 x Box Jumps + 10 x KB Swings. The second round would be 4 x HSPU + 9 x Box Jumps + 9 x KB Swings, the third round would be 4 x HSPU + 8 x Box Jumps + 8 x KB Swings… continue working through all ten rounds in this fashion. Get some, freaks.

Skill Development
7 sets of L-sits (Rings/Matadors/Paralettes)
Set #1: Max Effort Hold for time
Set #2,3,4: Hold x 2/3 the time of score (round up)
Set #5,6,7: Hold 1/2 the time of score (round up)

Notes: For example, an athlete scores :30 seconds on their first attempt at the
L-sit hold, their second through fourth set would be :20 seconds each. The fifth and sixth effort would be :15 seconds each. Scaling by order of difficulty/work emphasis: L-sit with legs extended at hip height > L-sit with knees at hip height > Ring Support with hollow body position > L-sit on low rings with body bent 90 degrees at hips, heels supporting on the deck > plank position on low rings > plank position on deck, arms extended, feet on dumbbells > plank position with elbows on deck.

    High & Dry: 10:48 RX weight. Abmat/plate. Last 8 HSPU were shady. All HSPU strict. No water breaks.
