WODprep Strategy Top Tips:

Let’s talk about the pacing first. This workout is all about bringing together those moderate-weight thrusters with those challenging wall walks. It’s like a double whammy for your strength and coordination. The trick here is to be smart about your pace. Don’t be in a hurry to blast off right at the start. Instead, focus on moving smoothly and not taking marathon breaks.

Speaking of thrusters, they’re going to keep you on your toes, especially as the reps go down. For the opening round of thrusters, think about something doable like 6 or 7 reps. Then, as the reps shrink, try to power through without pauses or maybe split them into 2 sets.

But remember, keep those breaks short. Here’s a pro tip: when it comes to resting during thrusters, it’s better to let the bar chill on your shoulders rather than dropping it all the way.

And then we have the wall walks. These babies want your upper body strength and coordination. For the initial rounds, make it your goal to knock out those wall walks without interruption. As things ease up, think about splitting them into a couple of sets. That way, your heart rate won’t go crazy.

 

Thrusters! Love em or hate em, you won’t get far in CrossFit without embracing them!
