Akshay fighting through those OH Squats!

No Ring Dips? No Problem!

Some good ol’ ring dips make an appearance today. This can be a difficult movement for many, especially when working towards the full range of motion. For those that have ring dips but struggle when the volume gets high, don’t just throw a band on there and fly through easy reps. Consider bringing the number of reps down per round and keep the movement RX. If you can only get a couple of reps, do them, then go to an appropriate scaling option to finish them out. The goal for scaling is to find an option that is right for you. That means it should provide a path towards RX reps in the future and be appropriately challenging. If it’s too easy, or for instance today, if you bust out 30 reps unbroken with no problem, it’s too easy and that’s not going to get you very far. We’ll talk about some options for you during the briefing, but keep this in mind as you choose what’s right for you!
