Daily WOD – Aug 22, 2011

6 p.m. cheer section
Joe mid-bear

Skill: Handstands (against the wall)


6-5-4-3-2-1- Muscle-up and Bear Complex

WOD Notes: The substitute for a muscle-up will be a single jumping muscle-up OR 2 pull-ups & 2 push ups. The bear complex is a barbell progression consisting of 5 lifts: power clean -> front squat -> push press -> back squat -> push press (from behind the head). Tap the floor and start again. The front squat -> push press CAN be combined into a thruster. (So can the back squat -> push press.)

If you’ve never done a bear complex, check out the video demonstration below:
