Bar Facing Burpees 

WODprep Strategy Top Tips:

This workout is a trap from the get go. After the round of 15’s, you are only 40% of the way through. As the name of the workout hints, you’re climbing (cycling*) a mountain and it’s going to be uphill slog. Keep your early round burpees paced and your OHS smooth. The aim is to stay unbroken as much as possible (without redlining). The workout really begins in the round of 20, so when that round starts, you should still feel pretty fresh.
