Pull-ups & Ropes - Day 71

Today's WOD is actually one that I can not do EITHER of the exercises. I saw it posted this morning and was a little bummed at first, but the scaling on BrandX is perfect! I'll be doing the "puppies" scaling, like usual.

I'm going to have to jimmy-rig some kind of rope on the pull-up bar (maybe a towel) to try to do the rope climbs.

5 min. jog
5 min. jump rope
10 push-ups
20 ball sit-ups
10 KTC's
10 HSPU progressions (shins on bench)
2 burpees (2nd day of Burpee Challenge)

WOD (Puppies):
Three rounds for time of:
12 Pull-ups (jumping)
3 Beginner Rope Climbs (might do 6 instead)

Time: 7:17
--Round 1: 2:23 (H-jumping pull-ups - tried for L's, but it was actually an H; & 6 towel rope climbs)
--Round 2: 2:28
--Round 3: 2:26

The jumping pull-ups were REALLY difficult. I tried really hard to get my legs in an "L" shape, but could never quite accomplish it. Need to work on L-sits!

Something we do - which you could try for the L-pull up mod - is jumping up, and then lowering down in a L position - or as much of an L position as you can manage ... sometimes they look more like an h or a W ;-)

I didn't even think of that! Great idea!
