# TEACHING (12:00 – 20:00)
## CHEST TO BAR PULL-UPS
### Kick-Pop-Pull
While the chest to bar is typically thought of as an upper body pulling exercise, we are able to increase the intensity and size of our sets by starting from the ground up. Let’s think “kick-pop-pull”. The way up starts with a kick of the legs, then a pop of the hips, and finally a pull with the arms. If executed and timed correctly, kicking and popping before pulling will create a good weightless moment, allow athlete to pull a smaller percentage of their bodyweight. Leading with the hips first or pulling too early can mess with mechanics and make the movement exponentially harder. This works well on any type of kipping pull-up, but especially the chest to bar where the extra height is key.

### Elbows Back
The elbow position of the chest to bar pull-up will be slightly different than the chin over bar pull-up. In the chin over bar, we can point the elbows to the ground to finish the movement. In the chest to bar, sending the elbows back can help with making good contact on each rep. This backward motion pulls us further into the bar and exposes more of the chest. Feel the difference on the ground before we get up to the bar.

### Movement Prep
10 Scap Pull-ups
5 Kip Swings (Hard Kick)
5 Kip Swings (Kick-Pop)
3 Pull-ups (Kick-Pop-Pull)
3 Chest to Bar Pull-ups (Adding Elbows Back)

### Movement Substitutions
Reduce Reps
Chin Over Bar Pull-ups
Strict Pull-ups (15 Reps)
Ring Rows
Banded Pull-ups
Jumping Pull-ups

## THRUSTERS
### Push-Pop-Press
The thruster is the weightlifting equivalent of the chest to bar pull-up, as it has a very similar sequence from the ground up. On the barbell, we’re thinking “push-pop-press”. The push is the initial leg drive coming out of the squat. The pop is the aggressive upward drive of the hips into the bar to create the weightless moment on the bar. The press is the finish of the movement, locking the weight out over the middle of the body. Just like the pull-up, if we lack hip drive or use the arms too early, the weight will feel much heavier. Going heavy in the strength piece will allow athletes to really feel the leg drive and hip pop needed to move the bar in the metcon.

### Elbows Forward
Let’s also talk about the elbows on the thruster. We know that elbows up in the squat is important. However, elbows when bringing the bar back down to the front rack is just as important, especially when the weight starts to get heavy in part 1. If the elbows track straight down, the barbell will likely sit lower on the shoulders, making for a difficult balance in the squat. Pointing the elbows straight ahead while lowering the barbell back down will put it in a better front rack to seamlessly transition to the next rep. Think elbows forward or elbows parallel to the floor.

### Movement Prep
5 Front Squats
5 Push Press
5 Thrusters

# THRUSTER (20:00 – 35:00)
* Thruster will come from the rack today
* Building in weight on unbroken sets of 3
* You do not have to go right from overhead into the squat
* You can pause in the front rack after bringing the bar back down if that is helpful in regaining balance
* Just like Monday’s strength piece, this is the best time to coach the thruster with each individual athlete

# PRACTICE ROUND (35:00 – 40:00)
## 1 Round
5 Thrusters (95/65)
100 Meter Run
5 Chest to Bar Pull-ups

# STRATEGY + WOD (40:00 – 60:00)
## GENERAL
* Push hard on the inside movements and use the runs to recover a bit
* Quicks sets and quick breaks are better than long sets and long breaks

## CHEST TO BAR PULL-UPS
* Shoot for 3-5 Quick Sets 
* 3 Sets: 10-8-7
* 4 Sets: 8-7-6-4
* 5 Sets: 5-5-5-5-5

## THRUSTERS
* Shoot for 3-4 Quick Sets
* 3 Sets: 10-8-7
