    If you cannot climb a rope unassisted and perform organized, safe handstand push-up, perform path #1.

    Reminder: In a time-measured benchmark, pace is important, but never takes a back seat to position. Move quickly and specifically, scale weights to your ability, and keep ego in the passengers seat- not behind the wheel.

    Rest up to 5 minutes, then 3 rounds of:

    20 Jumps (Box jump, broad jump, lateral jump, vertical jump)
    10 Row (Bodyweight row, 1-arm kettlebell row, Pendlay row)
    1 minute Airdyne- max distance/ calories
    1 minute hollow rock/ hold

    Hammer position, standardize breathing, and scale movement and/ or weight if position breaks. Jump: Change variations by round if desired. Row: Choose one variation and use throughout. Sets are to be uninterrupted- select weight accordingly before, and scale weight accordingly during. If rest is needed, keep it short and take it after row.
