1 Round See notes for a reminder on what a Metcon Reset is!
Additional Notes: Remember, a metcon reset should be looked at first as if it were a regular metcon without rest (today, it would be 6 rounds for time of 20 snatches and 5 MU). Athletes would consider the overall time or pace they would like to hold from round to round if they were an unstoppable cyborg (within reason), and then attempt to hold THAT pace, knowing that they get rest at the point when we believe they would most likely start to seriously fatigue. Athletes can also perform their first 3 rounds, and then calculate their 1 round pace during their rest period, and attempt to hold that pace on all remanning rounds.
