10 Ring Pushups with turnout
2-4 Inverted to Lowers on Rings, slowly

Notes:  Scale the pistols up by adding a PVC or barbell overhead or perform a scale by standing on a box and touching the ground.  The ring pushups should include a tight midline with the hips and shoulders moving at the same time, good depth with shoulders below the elbow and a good lockout at the top with rings turned out 45 degrees.  Scale down by changing the angle or scale up by adding a tempo and going wide in the bottom position.  Inverted to lowers should prioritize straight arms on the way down.  Feel free to use the lower rings to practice gettting inverted and using the ground for help.
