If you are fit enough to make it here, I would be prepared for a BAD HSW at first.
Besides our 55+ athletes, all scaled competitors will need to go upside down! This is exciting for some, and absolutely terrifying for others. If you're worried - watch this video for tips on how to kick up to the wall.
Focus on the same cues as the "Rx" division, but really don't forget to push your head through at the top for the lock out!
As we can see, standards are pretty much the same as Rx until we hit 55+, with a 5 inch advantage on the HSPU. Check out all of our above Rx tips.
If you're reading this and in the 55+ category... from what I can tell, these DBs will be fairly light. Try knocking out big sets, keep your core tight, and keep the resting to a minimum! You need to get to the bear crawls ASAP.
If you keep the above cue in mind for your leading leg, then this cedence will allow you to “touch & go” and remember to follow the standard (alternating legs). You must practice this before the WOD or else you’ll lose rhythm and fall apart!
If you're an athlete who tends to get banged up with lunging, then I'm going to recommend knee sleeves. They will help make the 200 feet lunge just a little bit more comfortable during the workout. Sure, you might look a little silly, but your knees will love you.
