Tips and Strategy

Start out with a moderate pace on this high-volume benchmark workout—a fast pace out of the gate will prove to be a mistake. Quality breathing during all of today’s movements (especially the Wall Ball Shots) is necessary to keep the heart rate from spiking too high. Match the breath with the movement (i.e. inhale to catch the Medicine Ball, exhale to throw it to the target) to help keep the breath steady and consistent.

Intended Stimulus

This should be a long grind with a healthy number of reps. We want you to be able to keep going, but also we want a big resistance from your body saying: “can we stop now, please?” In that delicate and constant battle is where we want you today. Moreover, when you are there we want you to smile and move on. That’s the stimulus that’ll guide our scaling. If modifying, keep a high number of reps and rounds, but decrease skill and overall workload to match today’s capacity. (source: Juan Acevedo)

Scaling Options

Scale the skill level of the Box Jumps (see: Box Jump Scaling) and/or the volume of the repetitions/rounds to move smoothly and effectively through the WOD. If the athlete takes longer than 7 minutes to complete the first round, they should scale back. This workout shouldn’t take much longer than 35-40 minutes.
