Back then, there was no such thing as kipping handstand push ups or ring dips, therefore we are doing strict HSPU’s and ring dips. Use the beginning of class to work on these skills and find an appropriate scale for you. You’ll notice that your lungs don’t feel this workout as much as local muscular failure aka “why won’t my arms work??” Smart sets are vital to avoid muscle failure as much as possible. Scale HSPU’s to db or barbell shoulder press.
Immediately after you finish JT, establish a 1RM clean and jerk in the remaining time you have. You’ll want bars and bumpers out on the floor when you begin. There is a 30 minute cap on this whole workout.

30 minutes to do:
Strict handstand push ups
Ring dips
Push ups

then in remaining time, find a 1RM clean and jerk
