Maria getting creative with the L sit practice

WOD:

Part 1:
OH Squat 5-3-3-1-1

Part 2:
21-15-9
OH Squat (95/65lbs)
Pullup

Part 1:Challenge the load, increase weight each set and make sure you don’t start out too conservative.  Rest 2-3min between sets.

Part 2 should be able to be done unbroken. You may need to break up the pullups, but preferably not.

This is a SPRINT.  Scale load and pullups accordingly.

Watch and Learn!  We will be performing this tomorrow during class.  The Sotts press, using the snatch grip is used in training philosophy to make the athlete strong in the bottom position, as well as get the athlete to focus on pushing up against the bar with very straight elbows.  This technique is impairitive when overhead squatting!
