5 Rounds, On the 4:00
12 Toes to Bar
15 Deadlifts (185/135)
10 Calorie Row
The score for today is the slowest completed round. If athletes complete the round in 2:00, they will have 2:00 to rest before beginning the next interval. Load on the deadlift bar should be a light weight that athletes could complete with a maximum of one break.
With built in rest and the score today being the slowest round of the 5, we want to push the pace without making our first two rounds our fastest. Approaching the first two rounds like athletes picture themselves completing the third round will help them find an aggressive, but controlled pace. What we want to avoid here is redlining on the first round, which would be difficult to bounce back from. The toes to bar may very well be the first thing to go. While athletes may be capable to going unbroken on the first couple of sets, being forced to break later in the workout could be the big difference maker is changes in times from round to round.
With Remaining Class Time Work on a Skill…the Open begins Febuary 22nd!
