Can you Hold it?

“The Chief”
5 Rounds

6 Push-ups
9 Air Squats

Score: 26 + 2

The key is not going out too hot. Starting at a pace you can hold. To be honest that’s normally the strategy for most workouts and one I have a hard time following.

Round 1-4: I held onto 5 rounds plus 3 reps, on the 5th round I picked up the pace and gave it all I had left. In the end, my strategy was simple but it paid off. The workout wasn’t too painful and I knew after my second round that I could hold this speed and I did.

All movements were unbroken since they were such small sets. Transition time could have been faster since there are many of them. I will have work on that next time I retest this workout.

Glad I had a partner for this long chipper. Splitting the work evenly made it possible to move through quickly and in small manageable sets. The original name is Rouse 410 The workout was designed to be done solo. I found it while flipping through WODwell on Instagram and thought it would be fun to do while the kids were napping.

Fun is defiantly the wrong word. I hit a wall during the power cleans and it felt like those reps took forever. Everything was broken up in small sets: 10’s on the Deadlifts, 3’s on the Cleans and Snatches, and 8’s on the Overhead squats.

Finishing with single on the Man Makers was just brutal but a great way to end a workout and call is quits for the day.
