WODprep Strategy Top Tips:

This workout is going to hit at you hard, so having a strategy is key. The barbell should be approached as fast singles unless you feel you can hold 5/5 touch and go reps (for all 3 rounds). The aim of today’s workout is for you to improve your Grace time and practice your breathing. So, when we look at the double unders, don’t be trying to max out and feel gassed every time to come back to stare at the barbell. Look to hit the double unders unbroken or in two large sets of 50. You want to be doing double unders long enough so that you can concentrate on your breathing and keeping it level. Remember, fast 100 double unders and a slow 100 double unders are only a few seconds apart: this workout is won on the bar, and we don’t mean the tequila kind.
