Tips and Strategy
There are enough movements (and low enough volume per set) in “Loredo” to avoid any major muscle fatigue. Pick a strong pace from the beginning, and go faster as the rounds progress. Round 6 should be a sprint.
This is a workout designed to challenge your bodyweight strength and your cardiovascular endurance. The athlete should be moving fast and breathing heavily for the majority of the WOD. This workout should feel a little too long, like it should have only been 4 rounds—not 6.
Scale the volume (either the total number of rounds or reps) as needed to move smoothly and quickly. A strong pace—and minimal rest breaks—is important to get the benefits of “Loredo.”
