SB = stink bug
everyone ran

For 6am, this was a WOD where muscle fatigue set in before lung capacity ran out. As reps get harder, try your best to maintain solid form, and scale accordingly.

We used variable scales today, that is; as one method became impossible we stepped down to the next variation that allowed the movement to be completed. Get with a coach and make sure you have the necessary scales set up for your needs.

Lastly, I don't know about other classes, but there is a 2 ab mat limit for HSPU at the Wednesday 6am class. If you're putting 3 and 4 ab mats under your head for HSPU, the range of motion is so limited that you almost can't improve. Think about stink bugs or box HSPUs as a solid alternative...just my thought, maybe there is someone out there that started with 7 ab mats and had success.

My comment on scaling HSPU is as follows: If you are afraid of getting upside down, you need to work on getting upside down, even if that is with multiple ab mats. Vinny is correct and a 0.005" deficit will not make you stronger at HSPU but it will get you comfortable in that position. Stink bugs are a MAGNIFICANT tool to get stronger but you ABSOLUTELY must do them the correct way to get the benefit. I used to struggle with HSPU and I worked on stink bugs quite often and now I can string over 15 strict HSPU when fresh. To get stronger, you need to keep your butt as high as you can in a pike position and touch your head as far in front of your hands as you can. You are basically approaching crow where you feel ALL of your weight is being supported by your tri's. If you do this correctly, stink bugs IMHO are 100% harder than HSPU.

Yeah, Jason, I totally agree, being comfortable upside down is key to that movement. Today was especially challenging as most athletes could not stabilize while upside after the dips and push-ups.

Doing some "kick ups" or "kick up holds" spliced in with the reps is an awesome idea, but what I saw today, made it really tough, and understandably so.

Paul aka Boots!

Happy birthday buddy! I remember when you and Melissa came in for your intro. Oh if you only knew what world you were getting yourself into. You dove in headfirst and haven't looked back. I'm glad you found something you care about so much and dedicate so much time towards (who else besides maybe Aimee can say they spend 12+ hours at the gym most days??)

Do some "21"s for your birthday...or should it be "24"s??

Thanks P!

Great job finishing this wod Justin. Most of the time it makes sence to scale for intensity and time domain. But this was just one of those times when making it through the wod RX was just the right thing to do for you personally. It was frustrating but you did it. Legit.
