Overall this felt pretty good. Definitely irritated the hip quite a bit. Needed a better warmup and stretching routing. Been keeping the hips really warm with rehband warm shorts and sweatpants.
*Choose the loads based on feel, but these should be heavy
Complete as many rounds and reps in five minutes as possible of:
5 Burpees to Target (your pull-up bar)
8+1 or 9+1 (lost track but most likely 8. Kept a solid pace but pullup endurance was definitely limiting factor. the last 4 rounds were 5, 3, 2s which i could definitely improve on.)
Every burpee must finish with both hands touching your pull-up bar simultaneously.
Consider these five minutes a test of desire, and let your effort reflect your ambition to succeed in this sport.
