DESCRIPTION
*Going on the longer side in this all bodyweight workout
*The reps get smaller, but the rounds increase as this workout progresses
*We expect this piece to take around 25-30 minutes to complete
DOUBLE UNDERS
*If you have 100+ double unders unbroken, complete this workout as written
*If you’re under 100 reps, consider reducing the reps or completing another variation
*Use the following time recommendations when considering your options:
*160 Double Unders: 3:00 or Less
*80 Double Unders: 1:30 or Less
*40 Double Unders: :45 or Less
BAR FACING BURPEES
*Although there isn’t a weightlifting movement in this workout, we’ll set up a barbell with plates on it so standardize the burpee
*Make sure to face the barbell in the bottom of your burpee
*You can jump up or step up off the ground
*Jump with both feet over the bar
*You do not need to stand to full extension
STRATEGY
GENERAL
*While the opening round looks like the most amount of work on paper because of the high reps, the *5 rounds that follow make up the majority of the workout
*The workout can’t be “won” in the first round, but it can certainly be “lost” there
*Use the first 160 double unders, 800 meter run, and 40 bar facing burpees as a primer for the remaining 280 double unders, 1,000 meters of running, and 70 bar facing burpees
*Think about maintaining or building upon your opening round speed as you move along in this workout
*This speed is something you see yourself holding for close to 25-30 minutes
*Start smart and finish strong
DOUBLE UNDERS
*The double unders are the only movement we’ll break up
*Consider the following approaches to chip away at each set

DAILY MINDSET

 

“Action is the fundamental key to all success.”

~Picasso

There is no substitute for action. This is not breaking news.

Everyone has big plans. Big aspirations. The blueprint to “get there”. As integral as it is to have a plan, this is the easy part. And it’s where most stop, because it’s about to get hard.

A famous old American cartoon, “G.I. Joe”, finished every show with a saying: “Knowing is half the battle”. Despite the right intentions behind it, we recognize now it’s a false statement.

Knowing is not half the battle.
It’s not even a quarter.
It’s the first 10%, if that.
Action is 90%.
