WOD 01.Oct.14 Step-Ups, Push-Ups & Pull-Ups

You may need to get creative at home for the pull-ups – suggestions below. If you can jump up, then jump rather than step. Finish by standing tall. Every time.

2 rounds for time:

10 box step-ups, 12”-24”
5 pull-ups
5 push-ups
15 box step-ups, 12”-24”
5 pull-ups
5 push-ups
20 box step-ups, 12”-20”
5 pull-ups
5 push-ups

Modification for the push-up: upright, against the wall. Keep a solid core. Don’t do a knee push-up. You want to build a straight, strong line.

Modification for Pull-up: If you have a pull-up bar available, use bands to help you as you get stronger. Or hang on the bar, drop off, rest, repeat.  You can also use a door (cover the top with a towel to prevent splinters). Or a TRX or “exercise sling” for upright rows.
