You Go/I Go with Partner
12-9-6 Shoulder-to-Overhead, 145#/100#
12-9-6 Chest-to-Bar Pullups
Partner A performs 12 shoulder-to-overhead. Then Partner B performs 12 shoulder to-overhead. Partner A performs 12 chest-to-bar pullups. Then Partner B performs 12 chest-to-bar pullups. Repeat at 9 reps, then 6 reps. This constitutes one complete round. After the sets of 5, start over with 12 (this is the beginning of round 2).
If you have an odd number, form a team of three and change the reps to 9-6-3 each round.
Shoulder-to-Overhead: Athlete should be able to perform the rounds of 15 and 10 in no more than two sets, the round of 5 unbroken. Scale load accordingly. Athletes who do not have good overhead stability/mobility may use dumbbells instead of a barbell.
Chest-to-Bar Pullup: Athlete should be able to perform the rounds of 15 and 10 in no more than two sets, the round of 5 unbroken. Scale repetitions accordingly. Scale movement to jumping chest-to-bar pullup. Make sure athletes performing jumping chest-to-bars know to jump and quickly drop, not slowly lower themselves.
