I encourage you to start light and build slowly over the course of about 20:00. It’s important that you give your legs a good amount of rest in between sets as they will become quickly fatigued each set. To help facilitate you to rest, complete some sort of “Pulling” accessory (listed below) during your Back Squat session today.
Try to keep a consistent pace for 1:30, take note that you will only have :30 of rest (that is not a lot). Be sure to have enough “Gas” for all 6 sets. If you’re more familiar with this type of workout, feel free to work with your coach to pick a suitable “Goal” to hit each round.

Feel free to mix n’ match to suit your capabilities or what you want to work on. I encourage you to work with your coach in order to find a way to make the workout challenging, yet not so challenging where you won’t be motivated to give it your all!

Those that are new or just looking for a good/solid conditioning workout should follow the workout as is. You’ll perform your pull ups early on in the workout so that fatigue won’t be so great at the point. If you’d like to challenge your pull ups or muscle ups, I encourage you to begin with the second portion of the workout as to fatigue your muscles a bit more before attempting your pull us or muscle ups.

The name of the game is to try and figure out what type of “Self-Talk” you tend to use in these types of workouts. To help break up your 8 Rounds of work, feel free to fit in a Farmer Carry or 2 whenever you feel like you need to mix it up a bit. Be sure to complete 4 Farmer Carries though before the workout is done.

You’ll have 2 options for your Weightlifting today. If you’re goal is to focus on your movement mechanics and overall strength, I encourage you to go with our normal EMOM. If you’d like to add a conditioning aspect to your weightlifting (which is good to practice for our longer metcons) go ahead and choose 1 of the choices below. As a reference, the “[Pick 1] + 2 Squat Cleans” should be complete in :30 – :40.
You may choose to perform the simple 9:00 AMRAP which focuses on smaller sets and constant movement. This will hopefully limit your muscle fatigue and allow you to maintain an elevated heart rate. Your other option is the 9:00 AMREP. This option will take you through a ladder-style workout where muscle fatigue will certainly play a role during the larger reps. Be sure to talk with your coach to find out which version best suits you!

If you’re fairly new to DB Push Presses, feel free to choose your own weight that is comfortable today. If you’re familiar with DB Push Presses, feel free to choose from the weight options below! The AMRAP today will focus on constant movement. Try to manage your heart rate in a way that you’ll have a little bit of energy for a good 2:00 push at the end! If you’d like to try your hand a bit more chipper-style workout, give the “Volume Focus” a chance. Enjoy!
