The Rundown: 

I had the awesome opportunity to tackle this workout a few weeks ago at CrossFit Southie and I had a blast doing this one. Although it was a TON of pulling, it was the kind of gymnastic grind where you can just find your rhythm and move!

Obviously, if you are still learning muscle-ups (or can't do that many) you can do 2 or 3 times the number of pull-ups. Also, for scaling options, if this is too many calories, then you can scale the calories on the rower to something like this. 

Scaling options:

25 Calorie Row
15 pull-ups
20 Calorie Row
12 pull-ups
15 Calorie Row
9 pull-ups
10 Calorie Row
6 pull-ups
5 Calorie Row
3 pull-ups

Either way, scale the reps from above as needed, and power through this as you can! This workout was super fun, and although looked super long, was still something you can move through pretty efficiently. Watch the video from Marc & Aimee on muscle-up transition drills, and if you need more help on pull-ups or muscle-ups, head to our YouTube page here.
