Compare to: RANDY
Coaching Tips: Pace this one out so that you do a steady number each minute (not 1/2 in the first 2 minutes, then 1/2 in the next 6). Use small sets and watch the clock to stay on pace.
Scale up: "Ryan"
** Maplewood, MO Firefighter, Ryan Hummert, 22, was killed by sniper fire July 21st 2008 when he stepped off his fire truck responding to a call.**
For time - 5 rounds (a partner version is another great option)
7 muscle ups
21 burpees with a 12" reach touch
Scaling Guide: 12-22 minutes
Compare to: RYAN
Coaching Tips: Try to do the muscle ups in fast sets, then pace the burpees so that you can hit the muscle ups hard. Once you finish the last set of Muscle ups, make sure you go for broke on the last round of burpees!
