WOD – “Flow State”
15/10 cal Ski
12 KB Swing (53/35)
9 Pull Ups
5 rounds for time
Presses for days today .. building on the strength percentages and the goal is to continue the building.
The WOD focuses that upper body strength while allowing us hit a flow state. What is that? Is is where we can find a fast speed and continue for large sets. We have focused on breath work and here it will pay you dividends. Aim for tall hands on the SKI with the idea of a core pulling the upper body down, and then finishing with a flash on the hands at the end.
Breath comes from deep nasal breath and release out of the mouth.
The KB swings are light and fast. American style swings but with all the hips you can bring to it. Again inhale with your nose and quick breaths out through our mouths.
Finally – pull-ups. These again should be smooth. At this point we are at a fast pace, so be sure to get a few deep in hales in the belly between movements.
The reps are manageable but at 5 rounds we are going to have to really press forward. Mental game here will be required to see you finish with negative splits – yes that is our goal. Last round, let’s make it faster than the first round. Please.
