Dumbbell Bench Press / Pronated Grip Ring Row
A1) Dumbbell Bench Press:
2 x 12-15 @ 4121
A2) Pronated Grip Ring Row:
2 x 12-15 @ 4121
Use a load that’s light enough to allow you to perform the prescribed reps at the prescribed tempo. This will probably be in the ballpark of 40% for most folks. Change the angle of the body on the Ring Rows to more horizontal and/or add a weight vest to increase the degree of difficulty.
Rest :30 between exercises and 1:00 between sets.
Post work to comments.
Week 3 of 6
4 Rounds For Time:
10 Alternating Pistols
25 Wall Ball Shots
Modify the pistols to alternating reverse lunges and the double-unders to alternating foot steps or 100 singles as needed. Can you do the wall balls unbroken?
CFSBK circa May 2009.
This is when we were still renting space at the Brooklyn Lyceum. Sometimes the space would be double-booked with a local orchestra’s rehearsal times. We had to train as quietly as we reasonably could while we enjoyed a live performance during workouts.

18 Things to Do on Black Friday Instead of Shopping Frugalwoods
This is one of those days when just dragging my butt in is a win. I looked at the WOD and I was seriously considering just going to Open Gym and doing something easier and I was like “I’ll take class only if I see someone I like!” Then I saw Ashima and I was like “OK I have to do this now.”
25# on bench press for 12s, will try that weight for more reps next week.
Ring rows also 12s, need to work on pulling shoulders back through the entire movement.
WOD 11:39 with lunges and alt foot steps. I don’t know where my double unders went today. Since I was in “just showing up is a win” mode, I’m not mad at myself for scaling so much of this.
My answer to “Can you do the wall balls unbroken?” was “Sure, in the first round.” They were very broken after that. 😛
