1 Deadlift

1 Hang Power Clean

1 Front squat

1 Push press

30 second Handstand hold between rounds

Rest as needed and perform:

Three rounds, 15-12-and 9 reps, for time of:

For weighted pull-ups, placing a 45 pound dumbbell between the legs above crossed ankles works great.

Remember, doing a wod rx’d doesn’t really mean a damn if you are executing a movement incorrectly.  I know for many of you, the holy grail is being able to do workouts rx’d.  It’s a great goal to have and a great motivator to keep getting better. Will the workout be as good if you have to scale down?  You may actually have a better workout since not only will you be able to execute the movement safely and effectively, you will be able to move through full range of motion versus half- assing it.  For today, most of you will be scaling.  Pick a weight you can maintain good standards with (hip crease below the knee, full extension at the top, chin over the bar, etc) and push the intensity.
