WODprep Strategy Top Tips:

A good time for to complete Diane is under 5 minutes 29 seconds. By using this strategy, let’s see how close you can get.

So first up, we’ve got deadlifts. You’ll be using a barbell, and the weight is on the heavier side, especially with the prescribed number of reps. So, it’s essential to pace yourself wisely and not burn out early.

Here’s a suggestion for each round:

For the round of 21, you can consider breaking the deadlifts into 3 sets of 7 reps each or maybe 2 sets of 11 reps each. Take short rests between the sets to catch your breath.

Moving on to the round of 15, try breaking the deadlifts into 3 sets of 5 reps each or maybe 2 sets of 8-7 reps each. Again, this helps you manage the load and stay strong throughout the round.

Lastly, for the round of 9, give it your best shot to complete this set unbroken. But if that feels too challenging, you can do a quick set of 5 reps followed by 4 reps.

Now, let’s talk about kipping handstand push-ups (HSPU). These require good technique and upper-body strength, so don’t worry if they feel a bit tough. Here’s how you can approach them:

For the round of 21, aim to finish it in 3-4 sets. You can try something like 7-7-7 or maybe 10-6-5. Find a rhythm that works for you.

When you get to the round of 15, shoot for 3 sets of 5 reps or maybe 2 sets of 8-7 reps. Remember, consistency is key here.

Finally, in the round of 9, you can aim for 2 sets of 5-4 or, if you’re feeling strong, go for it unbroken!
