150314 – Open Week 3

15.3 here and we’ve gotten the rings hung right in time!  Who will get their first muscle up today?  Just a reminder, the shoulder joint is more susceptible to injury when its structures aren’t adequately developed/strengthened. For this reason, we’d like you to get a strict muscle up before kipping this reason.  Think long term here, it’s great to get that first muscle up, but if it comes at a price, it’s not worth it.  Instant gratification is great, but working hard and earning that strict muscle up will be even more gratifying.

Warm up –
2 Rounds:
300m Run
25′ High Knees
25′ Butt Kicks
25′ Double-tap Teapots
5x Lizard Lunge + 1-3 Push ups (per side)
10-15 Kip Swings (focus on perfect body position)
3-5 Ring Rows

Skill/Strength –
15:00 to work on:
Muscle-up progressions
Double Unders

MetCon –
CrossFit Games 15.3 (Rx Division)
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 14 minutes of:
7 muscle-ups
50 wall-ball shots
100 double-unders

Men use 20-lb. ball to 10 feet, Women use 14-lb. ball to 9 feet

Scaled Division:
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 14 minutes of:
50 wall-ball shots
200 single-unders

Men use 20-lb. ball to 9 feet, Women use 10-lb. ball to 9 feet

Beginner Division:
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 14 minutes of:
50 wall-ball shots
200 single-unders

Men use a 14lbs Ball to 9 feet, Women use an 8lbs ball to 9 feet

Tiebreak
In this workout, we are using a special tiebreak method. At the end of each set of double-unders, time should be marked. When you submit your final result, your score will be the number of reps completed. There will be another field in which you will enter the elapsed time at which you completed your last set of double-unders.

For example, a male athlete finishes 2 complete rounds, plus an additional 2 muscle-ups for a total of 316 reps. This is his score. During his second round, he finished his 100th double-under at 13:20. In this case he will enter 13:20 as his time in the tiebreak field. This athlete would be ranked above someone who got 316 reps and a tiebreak time of 13:45, but below someone with 316 reps and a tiebreak time of 13:00.

Scale today’s metcon as needed. If double KB swings (eye-level) are too hard with 53/35 then use the 26s, 18s, or use a much heavier single kettlebell than you use normally. Also, be smart about scaling your L-sits; some of you will benefit more from this workout doing less time or to perform the L-sit by just raising your knees. If you lack the hamstring flexibility/strength to hold your legs fully extended and parallel to the ground, then just raise your knees as high as possible.
