Gymnastics Skills Option
If you are not familiar with the False Grip for rings, please watch this video.

A.
Every 30 seconds, for 3 minutes (2 sets) of:
Interval 1 – False Grip Static Hang x 15 seconds
Interval 2 – Cast Swing x 3 reps
Interval 3 – Ring Pull-Ups Scaled with False Grip x 6-8 reps

B.
One set of:
Movement 1 – Snap Pulls x 10 reps
Movement 2 – Snap Pulls + Small Backswing x 5 reps
*The “backswing” is not a large swing. Rather, allow your body to relax from the toes-forward position after the Snap Pull, causing a natural backward drift of your feet, then return the swing in the front where you performed the Snap Pull.

Rest 30 seconds, and then…

C.
For 60 seconds, perform one set of:
Pop Swing x max reps
*Though it may be easy to make these swings large, the intention of the exercise it to focus on aggressive hip extension with an open shoulder angle early in the swing. This swing should stay small, yet produce upward lift creating a “floating” feeling in the torso and a diagonal body position. Arms should stay behind the ears throughout the set.
