WODprep Strategy Top Tips:

Power Cleans:

Select a weight you’re comfortable with for 5 unbroken Power Cleans. Prioritize proper form to prevent injuries. If necessary, break them into smaller sets, but minimize rest between. As fatigue sets in, you might opt for quick singles, yet keep breaks brief.

Lateral Burpees Over the Barbell (Lateral BOB):

Efficiency is key in your burpee technique. Employ a two-foot takeoff and landing to save energy. When leaping over the barbell, aim to land as close as possible, conserving energy.

These can be demanding, especially when combined with other moves, so find a sustainable pace to keep going consistently.

Calorie Air Bike:

The Air Bike is notably challenging, especially post other exercises. Break the 10 calories into two portions, like 6 and 4, for a momentary breather.

Maintain a steady pedal rhythm, using both arms and legs for power. Remember, pacing is vital to avoid early burnout in the workout.
