Tip of the Day
The toes to bar in today's hero are a good time to work on your straight leg form.  The straight leg form will slow you down just a bit and all you to make the toes to bar a rest station.  When you shorten your kip and bend your knees, you increase the speed and intensity of the movement and they become more taxing, requiring more rest.  When you get to the DB's, be prepared to do both movements unbroken.  With a lighter weight than we have previously programmed, that is definitely doable.
