Hit the Rx button if you complete the workout written in the description. If not, write the weight you used and any other scaling options in the comments.

 Goal:

Aim for 5 plus rounds!

Top Tips:

Keep the down-ups moving but steady so you have energy to get through the manmakers efficiently.   See notes and video for scaled options on man makers.

Workout Description:

Set your timer to countdown from 10 min.  At the sound of 3,2,1 GO start with 1 man maker, then 5 down-ups.  Each round add on 1 man maker, down-ups will always remain at 5.  How many manmakers can you get up to in 10 min?  Record total rounds and reps to wodify.

Movements:

Man Maker: These make you crazy strong! Start in a plank position with hands on top of the dumbbells (hexagon only!), push-up (feet together, tummy tight), Row right arm, row left arm, jump your feet forward into squat stance (under your shoulders) brining the weights to your shoulders and perform a thruster (front squat and press overhead). One rep done!

Scaled Man Maker:

1. Push-up to knees, row left arm, row right arm, stand with DB's and perform squat and press overhead (a thruster)

2. Remove pushup, row left arm, row right arm, stand with DB's and perform squat (remove press portion)

*If getting to the floor is the challenge then:

3. Pushup to table, row left, row right in bent over standing position, with DB's squat (remove press portion)

Burpee: Throw both feet behind you (or step down) landing on the floor on hands with chest and thighs both contacting the floor. Jump both feet (or step) forward towards your hands and stand, jump with a clap overhead. Downup: Same as burpee to descend, just omit the jump and clap overhead.
