Monday, October 30th

Workout: For Time – 24 Minute Cap

100/80 Calorie Row
80 Wall Ball
60 Deadlift (155/105)
40 Bar Facing Burpee
20 Deficit Handstand Push Up

Workout Brief

Feel: Muscle / Pace: Grind

This chipper workout will require you to maintain moderate sized sets the entire time. The loading shouldn’t be an issue but it will dictate when and how often you need to break things ups. The goal is to minimize the total time resting in this workout so take transitions as you see fit. Push yourself on your Handstand Push Up option to do something you don’t typically do.

As Many Rounds As Possible in Remaining Time

Workout Brief

Feel: Muscle / Pace: Grind

Move at a moderate pace on the run so you give yourself plenty of time to work through the rounds when you get back. The entire round should be unbroken so that you and your partner are getting the same amount of work to rest. Be mindful of your Pull Up option – it should be something that challenges you in the later rounds, but is comfortable to maintain the rep scheme.
