This style of workout is the most painful for me. It’s all lightweight so everything is unbroken (besides the ring rows) and its a total cardo blast which I secretly love but I hit redline every time, which is what this workout is intended to do.
My strategy was to work for 45 seconds and give myself 15 seconds rest/transitions on each movement besides the burpees.
Here’s the breakdown: Front squats, no problem keep them slow and steady. Same with SDLHP’s it’s a lot of hinging but I know I can push through. Minute 3 is what killed me every round, ring row I ended up breaking each round in sets of 5’s 4’s and 3’s it wasn’t pretty.
I was able to gain some ground on the Push-presses. This is a much easier movement and a lower range of motion which I tried to use as my advantage. Last but not least burpees. The name of the game just kept moving. I know after this movement I would have a minute rest so I could push through.
This style workout as me on my back every time, which is the intent. Tomorrow REST DAY!
