So by now we have all had a look at 15.2 which is chest 2 bar and o/h squats for the rx athletes and pullup o/h squats for the scaled athlete. There seems to be a lot of discussion around the pullup as a scaled movement. If you consider a knee tuck was the scaled version of the Toes 2 bar from 15.1 the movements dont seem to scaled to the same level as in 15.2
So how do we react to this?There are two options:
Smash out the overhead squat and try for the pullup.Who knows you might surprise yourself!!!
Use this as motivation to fuel your trainng for the next three months to master the Pullup
Encourage other members to back their technique and have a crack at 15.2
Identify that there is a chink in your armor and work on pulling movements at the box
Get down on yourself
Say that it is way to hard and bad programming
Moan to others about the movement
Ask your self what you are even doing this for
You need to think about why you entered the games in the first place. It is about your overall development.There are movements that all of us struggle with. Perhaps the best form of defense is attack. Hopefully 15.3 will be more in your wheelhouse.
