Scaling:
This couplet will tax your grip. Choose dumbbell loading and a pull-up modification that allow you to keep moving, even with shorts working sets followed by a quick rest. New athletes should reduce the overall volume.

Intermediate Option:
5 rounds for time of:
50-ft. dumbbell front-rack lunge
20 pull-ups

♀ 25-lb. DBs ♂ 35-lb. DBs

Beginner Option:
3 rounds for time of:
50-ft. dumbbell front-rack lunge
15 assisted pull-ups

♀ 10-lb. DBs ♂ 15-lb. DBs

15:17 as rx’d. With true front rack. Round 1 in about 2:00. Gymnastics kip. Unbroken lunges except for a break on round 4, which was a mistake, in retrospect, since I didn’t get winded until about :20 after starting lunges regardless of wether I put them down. Grip became a factor at the end but I was slowed more by my lungs...felt kind of pukie after round 3.


pullups: 15/10,15/10,15/10,10*/8/7,5’s

*had to put a leather grip on right hand


Fasted again except for 4 small plums.

Globo scale: sorry for the late post. But for those doing this in the future, here we go. Most globo goers should be able to RX this one. If a 50 feet length is not doable due to space do 5x 10ft lengths, or around 18 front rack alternating stationary lunges per round. For pullups, if you need to do them strict scale to 12-15 reps. Otherwise as RXed. No pullup bar/station? Do heavy rows with the available dumbbells, lat pulldowns, or bodyweight ones from a railing, Smith rack, or off the treadmill arm. Put your feet up on a bench or box for an additional challenge.


Equipmentless sub do 50 jump lunges and the pullups. If you do not have a pullup bar or railings (see above) do heavy backpack or bag rows.

As rx’d, 12:53.


Rough.  Unbroken lunges, they were pretty spicy.  Did pull-ups 25 / 20-5 / 15-10 / 10-10-5, and then the last round was 7-5 and a bunch of 2’s and

3’s.  Just barely made it through without tearing.  Rounds were about 2 minutes to start, but by round 3, I had slowed considerably.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT

"Tricking yourself" is a term I use a lot that means exactly what it says. It's a way to get yourself to accomplish something in the short-term that you normally would not. On today's workout, for example, I went into it fully expecting to call it good after 2 rounds. "I know how to do lunges and pull-ups, and I need my energy for the Babies session," I told myself. "So do 2 rounds unbroken just to make sure you still got the pull-ups down and then shoot around for awhile." Of course, I did my 2 rounds and then said, "might as well do 3, which would be more of an honest in-season workout." I did three and, as you can guess, "well I already did 3 and haven't broken up the pull-ups yet, might as well see if I can get 5." This kind of strategy helps me in longer workouts like Cindy, pretending like the workout only lasts 5 minutes, or trying to see how quickly I can finish the next 2 rounds, etc.


WORKOUT THEMES

Challenging the strength of our unilateral loading while squatting and the coordination/stamina of our pulling. Stamina plays a huge factor.


MAIN DECISION

Keep the pull-up volume by splitting up reps/cutting ROM or keep the pull-up volume by focusing on the skill (kips)?


TECHNIQUE SCALE

5 rounds for time of:

30 lunges

25 kips


CONSISTENCY SCALE

5 rounds for time of:

40 lunges

25 ring rows


INTENSITY SCALE

5 rounds of:

20 jumping lunges

10 pull-ups

*rest 5 minutes, then repeat again


INJURY SCALE

This is one of those workouts I think would be useful to not try and mimic if you're injured, but rather follow the themes of stamina, unilateral loading, and, of possible, skill (global extension/flexion in kipping). Blend something together that you have full capacity of that gets you a good dose.


MY STUFF

12:33, did 25-lb. dumbbell lunges but did about 85 feet each time (down-and-back on blue mat). Pull-ups were all unbroken.


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL: 6

+1. This is a great strategy. Motivation waxes and wanes - on the down days, if you can trick yourself into working out, at worst you'll "check the box", and at best, you may surprise yourself and have a motivation turn-around mid-workout.
