@katherineenye (71kg, @hookgripusa) snatching a junior and senior American Record of 107kg/236lb! With a great save too!

Today’s workout involves multiple versions of the bodyweight pull in the classic CrossFit benchmark. If you can’t go Rx because you don’t have a muscle-up you can easily scale it down and modify your exercises. Examples:

jumping muscle-up + chest-to-bar pullup + pullup
chest-to-bar pullup + pullup + jumping pullup
pullup + jumping pullup + ring row
jumping chest-to-bar pullup + strict ring row + kipping ring row
etc.
