Firebreather Score: Sub-7 Minutes


  • DBs: Need to be heavy enough to challenge your athletes but not so heavy that the weight causes them to stand around. DB weight should be intentionally lighter than the usual 50s/35s. Remember the stimulus: Cardio, which means the DBs can’t be so heavy that athletes are slowed down due to purely muscular overload. Consider this: if an athlete uses 10/5lb DBs and went AS FAST AS POSSIBLE, they’d get a killer workout.
  • Run: Should not exceed :75 at any point, but the vast majority of your athletes should be able to run the prescribed distance.
