I sure as hell wasn’t going to do bar muscle-ups on our low bar like last year and I wasn’t going to the outside rig. So I put in toes-to-bars. Also not going to waste time switching the weight on the bar, so stuck to one weight and went light because we never really do thrusters due to our backs. I went 8-7-6 on the the pull-ups and then realized I haven’t done a double under in months! I missed many times in every round and my heart rate kept spiking. I went 8-7-6 on the first round of thrusters. Then 7-6-5 for both the T2B and second thrusters. Chest-to-bar pull-ups are my nemesis, so I did all kipping triples. Finished with unbroken thrusters at 11:49, taking a lot of too long breaks along the way. Was still wrecked after! Most importantly I made it out of the Open injury free this year without any stress.

Partner workout with B. For the jump rope and lunges we each went while the other rested. The dumbbell movements were paired up, so the partner rested until both movements were done. For the abs, each partner was working at the same time and then we switched. I started the first round and then we alternated who started every round after that. Took us 34:01.
