PLEASE READ THIS. to hit the stimulus of this workout you are shooting for 10 minutes or less. Don’t get so wrapped up in “RX.” A 10 minute working taking you 25 minutes is not what we are shooting for. Intensity equals results in wods. Strength portions of days are where you are supposed to be slower and deliberate with your movements.

Feel: Muscle overload/Gas Pacing: Reach

Target Score: Sub-10 Minutes Firebreather Score: Sub-7 Minutes

  • Double Unders: Should note exceed 3 minutes of practice. Allow athletes to accumulate
    double unders if they have them for 3 minutes, if double unders are not there, 1:1 single unders
  • Toes to Bar: Should not exceed 5 minutes to complete. Consider reduce reps to as few as 20
    reps for athletes with toes to bar or modify to knee raises
  • Squat Clean: Should not exceed 80% of PR Squat clean. Consistent singles are what we are
    looking for, coaches should be careful to not over scale the barbell and have it be too light.
    Coach Focus: Coaches should expect a bit of “WTF” from their athletes with today’s very, very beefy
    conditioning piece.
    We recommend a firm time cap of 10 minutes to ensure that athletes do not turn
    this shorter workout into a fitness saga.

    One effective way to ensure athletes move at the speed
    you are looking for them to move at is capping each section of the workout. Once the cap occurs,
    athletes move onto the next movement regardless of how many reps they completed in tha
    the jump rope, 3:00 – 8:00 for toes to bar, and 8:00 – 10:00 for the barbell at the end.
