Tips and Strategy
This is a workout you CAN sprint. You won’t have time to make up rounds or reps on the backend, so you will need to push the Double-Unders and the Wall Ball Shots from the start. The Dumbbell Box Step Overs will only go so fast and you are trying to race against grip fatigue.
Give it your best attempt to work through 2-3 unbroken rounds. Then after that, try your best to maintain the largest sets possible.
Overall the loading should feel moderate, which means you are able to accumulate multiple rounds unbroken on the Wall Ball Shot and 2-3 rounds unbroken on the Dumbbell Box Step Overs. If you don’t have a 30 lb Medicine Ball available, then you can shoot to an 11/10′ target instead. Challenge yourself to finish 2 rounds in less than 3:00.
