Tips and Strategy
The focus in “Combs” is clearly in the Runs as they are constantly doubling while the number of Air Squats decreases by 20 repetitions. You should still manage wisely the first set of squats in order to keep your legs fresh for the Runs left. After 120 Air Squats, it will be a real challenge for your legs to Run the final 1,600 meter! You’ve got 35 minutes…3-2-1 Go!
If the given variation is too hard, scale “Combs” by doing half the repetitions and distance.
