feel: Gas/Muscular Overload

Pacing: Reach
Target Score: Sub-26 Minutes (6 minutes of working time per section), consider a 30 minute cap.
Firebreather Score: Sub-23 Minutes


Row: Should not exceed 2:30 in any round

Front Squat: The final bar should not exceed 75% of the athlete’s 1RM. Each round should not exceed 3 sets to complete the front squats, but should be a good challenge that forces athletes to perform multiple sets.

Bike Should not exceed 2:30 in any round.

Coach Focus: Your athlete should be instructed to push the row buy-in each round with an aggressive, but not reckless pace, that allows them to walk over and get started right away on the front squats. Squat should be completed in 3 sets or less and then athletes should be urged to push the bike at the end of the round. We will be retesting this piece at the end of the phase so remind athletes to record their scores. This test is intended to be a Front Squat under-fatigue sort of test.

Additional Notes/Resources: A 4-5 minute stagger should allow athletes to share rowers/bikes with minimal interference/overlap. A 500m run may be substituted for the rowing and a 400m run for the biking portion if machines are limited.
