The weighted push up starts in a high plank position with weight on the upper back. The athlete will descend and touch the ground with their chest, keeping their knees locked to prevent snaking as much as they can. Do two push ups and end in a high plank position. If you cannot do push ups from your toes, do NOT do weighted knee push ups. Instead, work on your full toe push ups by doing negatives or elevate your hands on a 12″ box, barbell in a rack, etc. and do multiple reps (5-10) for multiple sets to get stronger.
For the metcon, you will attempt as many reps as possible of double unders for 1 minute, then rest for 1 minute. Then you’ll attempt as many thrusters as possible for 1 minute and rest 1 minute. Go heavy on the thrusters. Repeat this sequence 4 times and score the du’s and thrusters separately. (e.g. score is 347/38)
