“Lace Up” Class WOD
- AMRAP in 13 minutes
- “Lace Up”
- 60 Dumbbell Snatches (50/35)
- 50 Wallballs (20/14)
- 40/30 Calorie Row
- 30 Burpee Box Jumps (24/20)
With 180/170 reps per round, athletes will see how far they can make it into this AMRAP workout over the course of 13 minutes.
Scaling: The goal is for every athlete to get to the burpee box jumps. In order to accomplish that, we want to choose weights on the dumbbell snatches and wall balls that athletes are capable of completing 25+ repetitions unbroken when fresh. If short on rowers, stagger heats by three minutes.
About the wod
Strategy: While this is an AMRAP workout, we can think of it as a ALRAP. As Little Rest as Possible. The first two movements have the biggest potential for athletes to rest for a significant amount of time.
We don’t have to think big sets here, rather what rep scheme will allow for as little rest as possible before picking the bell or ball up again. This could be 10 sets, 5 sets, or 2 sets depending on the athletes. A good rule of thumb is to keep rest under 10 seconds. If athletes have to rest more than 10 seconds, the sets are likely too big. When the dumbbell or ball is on the ground athletes can take a look at the clock or count to themselves to keep them on track.
