"SLED DOG" WEEK 6: No barbell featured today, as we bring our attention towards gymnastics and odd objects. Beginning the day with some percentage work on ring muscle-ups and strict handstand push-ups. Smack dab in the middle we have a well balanced 4-round conditioning triplet. Evening out all the vertical pulling and pressing with a body armor session focused on horizontal pulling and pressing.

Monkey Business (Time)

"Monkey Business" 4 Rounds: 400 Meter Run 20 Dumbell Hang Clean & Jerks (50/35) 15 Chest to Bar Pull-ups

Stimulus Balanced conditioning piece today - containing one mono-structural, weightlifting, and gymnastics movement Looking for a dumbbell weight that we'll complete with 1 break maximum Switch arms every 5 reps on the dumbbell hang clean and jerks Choose a pull-up rep number or variation you can complete in 2-3 sets Strategy Run at a pace that allows you to go big on the inside movements Try to get the hang clean and jerks done with one break maximum (20 unbroken or 10-10) Switching arms every 5 reps is a good incentive to hold on for large sets, as one side is always resting The size of the pull-up matters less than limiting time spent resting Shoot for 1-3 quick sets, keeping breaks to a minimum (15, 8-7, 6-5-4) Following the pull-ups is about 2 minutes of running where the arms can recover Movement Focus Dumbbell Hang Clean and Jerk Grip If your hand is large enough, using the hook grip here can be beneficial. Especially with pull-ups to follow, it can take some of the forearm burn out of the movement and allow you to use more hip power. If you're not able to hook grip, the next best option is to try and get the knuckles under the handle so they point towards the ground.
