For time:

  • 50-40-30-20-10
  • GHD Sit-Ups
  • 25-20-15-10-5
  • Parallette HSPU

Time Cap: 20 Minutes

Scaling options: You can scale the GHDs with V-Ups or Ab Mat Sit-Ups and you can scale/modify the parallette HSPU with regular HSPU or hand-release push-ups. 

Some advice from Sasha: “My recommendation is to maintain an average pace on the GHD (or sit-ups) that allows you to arrive with energy for the limiting work that could be the HSPU. Be smart and cut the sets before you get too fatigued. If you feel good, you can go faster and faster in each set knowing that repetitions are descending. Good luck 🙂.”
