Climbing and Rings

This cold weather really does up the game. It demands motivation just to kick things off. Once moving though, things take a change for the better and the automaton kicks in.

Warm Up (5 mins)
Main (25 mins)
1a) Pistols (3x4)
1b) L-Sit Muscle Ups to Basic Ring Routine to Tuck Lever (5, 3, 3 MUs)
1c) Laddering

2a) Ring Splits/Cuts (2x4 each way)
2b) Frog Planche (2x '10s on, 10s off')

3) Deadhang Repeaters (321, 3a:7r:120s on small rungs)

4) 10 Minute Fingerboarding

In this cold weather it is important to feel fully warmed up particularly before any finger work. I usually wear mittens throughout the workout, removing them only when on the fingerboard. You need to raise your pulse to ensure warm fresh blood courses through to your extremities and primes them for work, but the mittens prevent rapid heat loss and re-cooling.
