Although we’ll be seated today, do your best to keep your core tight and avoid excessive arching of the upper back. You still want to focus on planting your feet firmly on the ground as well for maximum tension. Each round, alternate your grip on these Mixed Grip Pull-ups.

Pedal to the metal today, let’s go all out and shoot for under 6:00. When rowing for calories, you’ll get more by pulling harder, not by going crazy fast. Make sure to sequence the recovery properly, arms straighten out first, then lean in, then bend the knees last and keep the chain moving in a straight line.
– Goal: HARD Effort – sub 7:00
Rx+: (Handstand Push-ups for Burpees)
