*”Cindu” alternates between upper body pull, and upper body push, lower body push, and conditioning
*Let’s break these up in a way that you would if you were completing 15 rounds for time
*The big things to consider are the upper body movements
*The reps on the pull-ups are on the lower side, but there are 75+ strict pull-ups total in this workout
*If you need a quick break here, think about going 3-2
*The push-ups can add up over these rounds
*Breaking these up into quick sets of 5-5 or 4-3-3 can help you stay consistent
*The air squats help you pace the workout and provide a break for the upper half
*Move at a pace through those that allows you to thrive on the upper body movements
*Choose rep number or variation that allows double unders to be completed in 1 set
“Every strike brings you closer to your next home run.”
When you hear the name “Babe Ruth”, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
Hall of Fame home run hitter.
What is not the immediate reaction, is “all-time strikeout leader”. 1,300 strikeouts. A record for three decades he held. It was eventually broken, by another who struck out quite a bit too. Mickey Mantle. A name that would be hard to guess, as he’s right next to Babe Ruth in the hall of fame for his home run hits.
These two didn’t reach their success through the home runs. They reached it through the strike outs. Remove those embarrassing misses… and we would never know their names.
Every missed lift. Every poor competition. Every embarrassing stumble.
It’s bringing us closer.
This is where we get better.
