Scaling this WOD:

Aim for doing the pull-ups and push-ups in 5 or fewer sets. Reduce rounds, reps, and loads as needed to achieve this. Take advantage of complimentary push/ pull movement patterns and alternating between the upper body and lower body exercises to transition quickly between exercises.

If unable to complete the pull-ups and push-ups in sets of 5 reps or more, consider decreasing the total reps. If unable to complete the lunge without putting the bar down, consider reducing the weight.

4 rounds for time:

15 banded pull-ups

30-ft. front rack lunge (55/35)

15 knee push-ups

30-ft. front rack lunge (55/35)

The rounds, reps, distances, and loads have been reduced. Scale further if needed. Select a slightly more challenging band for the pull-ups to mimic additional loading.
